Mussorgsky Pictures at an Exhibition (arr. Ravel)

This afternoon’s concert opens with one of Strauss’s most sparkling miniatures. Till Eulenspiegel depicts the “merry pranks” of its eponymous hero, a German peasant who flirts, teases, pokes fun at the clergy and rides his horse through a marketplace. It is paired with Ravel’s equally pictorial orchestration of Mussorgsky’s musical walk through an art gallery, Pictures at an Exhibition.
