PICTURES ART

Music Director Laureate Leonard Slatkin returns to Orchestra Hall to conduct the world premiere of Mohammed Fairouz’s Another Time and Modest Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition. Fairouz’s Another Time is the third collaboration between the DSO and the esteemed composer, most recently following 2016’s Desert Sorrows.

Mussorgsky, blindsided by the sudden passing of his close friend Victor Hartmann, turned his pain into art: he composed Pictures at an Exhibition, a suite of musical paintings for piano, inspired by Hartmann’s sketches. Maurice Ravel later brightened this imagined gallery with the orchestral arrangement that’s so popular today.

Program
BERLIOZ Roman Carnival Overture
MOHAMMED FAIROUZ Another Time (World Premiere)
MUSSORGSKY/ARR. RAVEL Pictures at an Exhibition

Artists
Leonard Slatkin, conductor
