After an artist friend’s unexpected passing, Mussorgsky paid homage by composing a suite of musical paintings inspired by his friend’s sketches. Music Director Ken-David Masur conducts Gorchakov’s orchestral arrangement of this colorful gallery — listen for the familiar, brassy “Promenade” throughout. Sergei Babayan, a pianist of “consummate technique and insight” (New York Times) performs Prokofiev’s passionate Third Piano Concerto.
The MSO Steinway piano was made possible through a generous gift from Michael & Jeanne Schmitz
