Title:       Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition


Vladimir Ahkenazy will introduce the work stressing on the issues related to orchestration of a piano piece and the "Russianness" of the piece. He discusses the difference between the orchestration by Ravel and that by Leo Funtek (Finland). He will then play the piano version followed (if we have time) by the Funtek arrangement. The latter is where he conducts the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra.
