Experience Mussorgsky's Pictures At An Exhibition
The Colorado Symphony Orchestra welcomes special guest composer and conductor Jayce Ogren to the hallowed Boettcher Hall stage for a fresh spring program of works by Sibelius, Khachaturian and Mussorgsky. The ensemble will also be joined by violin virtuoso Claude Sim, a renowned performer who's proved his virtuosic mettle during his tenure as soloist with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra from the age of 21.
Sim lends his bow to Sibelius' 'Romance For Strings', 'Finlandia', 'Triste' and Adam Khachaturian's Armenian folk music-inspired Violin Concerto before the program arrives at its final piece and star of the bill Pictures At An Exhibition. Composed by innovative Russian Romantic composer Modest Mussorgsky and arranged by French impressionist maestro Maurice Ravel, it portrays Mussorgsky himself walking from one painting to the next in remembrance of his dear friend, Russian painter and architect Viktor Hartmann.
