Continuing an afternoon of Russian images and landscapes, we hear Mussorgsky’s evergreen Pictures at an Exhibition in its original version for piano: ten musical depictions of paintings by the composer’s artist friend Viktor Hartmann. Virtuoso pianist Roman Kosyakov won First Prize and the Orchestra Prize at the Hastings International Piano Concerto Competition. He also includes a selection of Rachmaninoff’s Études Tableaux, ‘study pictures’ that were also inspired by paintings, although Rachmaninoff did not disclose the specific inspiration for most of them!
