Modest Mussorgsky

Pictures at an Exhibition

Russian artist and architect Victor Hartman was a good friend of Modest Mussorgsky. When Hartman died at the age of 39, there was a memorial exhibit of his work. That inspired Mussorgsky to create his own tribute to Hartman — a composition depicting ten pieces of art from the exhibit. “Pictures at an Exhibition” was originally written for solo piano, but quite a few people have made orchestral versions of the piece. The best-known one is by Maurice Ravel.
