    Pictures at an Exhibition

Philharmonic Orchestra performs Maurice Ravel’s 1922 orchestration of Mussorgsky’s popular suite Pictures at an Exhibition. Based on the paintings of Viktor Hartmann, the orchestral suite is a triumph of colour and texture, evoking scenes of great Russian architecture and folklore. The idea of colour is further explored in two short antiphonal fanfares for brass, Signals from Heaven, by Japanese composers Toru Takemitsu, and in Samuel Barber's Adagio for Strings. In addition, cellist Richard Jenkinson (CBSO principal cellist and Dante Quartet), joins the Orchestra for a captivating performance of Barber’s Cello Concerto.
