Mussorgsky Pictures at an Exhibition (arr. Ravel)

The season opens with scenes of orchestral story-telling. In the Norwegian folk tale of Grieg's Peer Gynt, the anti-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.
