Kansas City Symphony - Pictures at an Exhibition

Helzberg Hall

June 21 - 23, 2019

An elevated work that thrills and delights in equal measures; it is first Musorgsky then Ravel we have to thank for Pictures at an Exhibition, one of the symphonic repertories most vibrant and transporting. We're given an aural tour of the paintings of Victor Hartmann, sweeping us from the contemplative quiet of a ballet lesson, to the catacombs of Paris before setting us down in the glory of Kiev's monumental arch celebrating Tsar Alexander II.
