Grieg Piano Concerto
Mussorgsky Pictures at an Exhibition (arr. Ravel)
Grieg’s towering Piano Concerto follows the story of Peer Gynt, in which the hero hurtles through the Nordic countryside to the eerie kingdoms of the Hall of the Mountain King. Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition curates a musical walk-round a gallery past paintings of gnomes, witches, medieval castles and the final pealing bells of the Great Gate of Kiev.
