One year after the death of architect and painter Victor Hartmann, composer Modest Mussorgsky visited the exhibit created to pay tribute to someone who was one of his closest friends. He immediately reacted with the musical portrayal of ten of the paintings (three displayed on said occasion and the others previously accessed). Pictures at an Exhibition was originally composed as a piano suite, and, later on, Maurice Ravel explored, with exemplary creativity, the enormous potential of the orchestral suggestions embedded in Mussorgsky’s piece.
