Sydney Symphony Orchestra presents
PICTURES AT AN EXHIBITION
By Modest Petrovich Mussorgsky (Russia)

Russian composer Mussorgsky’s much-loved orchestral classic comes to life in this energetic fusion of art and music.

Inspired by a retrospective exhibition of artist Vicktor Hartmann’s drawings and paintings, Mussorgsky created this musical tribute to capture the emotions his art evoked in him.

Combining the thrill of live orchestra with the movement of performance artist Andy Dexterity’s dance, physical theatre and signed languages such as Auslan, this dynamic concert will spark your students’ senses, allowing them to visualise each movement and be transported to Hartmann’s exhibition. This unique experience will give your students a new depth of music appreciation that will last a lifetime.

Repertoire:
MUSSORGSKY (orch. Goehr) Pictures at an Exhibition 

Teachers will receive digital resources to support learning around this concert.

FYI this concert is Auslan inclusive.
