Mussorgsky wrote Pictures in 1874 after being inspired by a visit to a memorial exhibition for Russian artist Victor Hartmann, who died in 1873.  The ten pictures were originally for piano, but have been transcribed for orchestra by many notable composers, among them Ravel, whose rendition is the one most often used today. 

This solo is edited in a comprehensive and detailed manner.  Larry Hurst’s insightful performance suggestions are enclosed with this music.
