Pictures at an Exhibition by : Modest Mussorgsky : Petra Weber-Bockholdt
In memory of the deceased illustrator and architect Viktor A. Harmann (1834-1873); an exhibition of his watercolors and drawings was organized in 1874. Modest Mussorgsky; who had been Hartmann's friend; was inspired by his visit to this exhibition to compose the cycle “Pictures at an Exhibition” for piano solo; a milestone of piano literature. He wrote it in June 1874 in St. Petersburg and subtitled it “Memories of Viktor Hartmann.” The picturesque and evocative musical language; which lets the pictures come to life; has remained fascinating to the present day. The source of the Henle Urtext edition is the cleanly written autograph. The layout of the musical text is based on Mussorgsky's notation.
