Description

The catalyst for the piano cycle "Pictures at an Exhibition", composed in 1874, was a memorial exhibition held that year for the artist and architect Viktor Hartmann. He was a friend of Mussorgsky who had died in 1873. It is not only Mussorgsky's most important contribution to the piano repertoire, but through its relationship to Hartmann's pictures and the translation of this idea into a composition, the cycle holds a unique place in 19th century piano repertoire.
