Come explore the intersection of symphonic music and visual art with composers who create vivid impressions with musical sound. Using the instruments of the orchestra like an artist’s palette, Debussy experiments with shifting shadows and bursts of light in Nocturnes, inspired by paintings of the same name. Mussorgsky’s famous Pictures at an Exhibition takes us on a promenade through several works of arts, bringing each subject to life in Ravel’s brilliant orchestration.

Debussy – Nocturnes (“Nuages”/”Fêtes”)
Mussorgsky – Pictures at an Exhibition (orch. Ravel)
Shostakovich – Cello Concerto in Eb Major, Op. 107
