How many versions of Mussorgsky’s iconic ‘Pictures at an Exhibition’ exist? Why has it fascinated conductors and orchestrators so much? Why do they continue to want to make new versions of this well-known music? There is much more to Mussorgsky’s ‘pictorial’ work than we may at first realise and, for many reasons, its content cannot but inspire new versions. This lecture looks at Mussorgsky the man, explains his friendship with the artist Viktor Hartmann, examines the music itself and compares many versions of this great work so that one can delve into it in new ways.
