Pictures at an Exhibition
Our Price: 12.00

Performers: M. Dee Stewart - Bass Trumpet, Tenor Tuba, Alto Trombone, Tenor Trombone and Bass Trombone
Marta Erdei - Piano

Modest Mussorgsky (1839-1881) composed Pictures at an Exhibition in 1874 as a tribute to his friend Victor Hartmann who died a year earlier. The work represents drawings of Hartmann's that had been displayed in Moscow at a commemorative exhibition.

Pictures at an Exhibition was a showcase for the Philadelphia Orchestra for much of the twentieth century, being featured on many of the orchestra's foreign tours. It showed off the tonal tapestries of Eugene Ormandy's ensemble and enabled the orchestra to make great music in the process. As a professor at Indiana University, Mr. Stewart was often asked to demonstrate musical examples from his Philadelphia days. He performed the Bydlo solo for tenor tuba on many recitals and his arrangements for the other movements for piano and the various low brass instruments followed until he eventually began performing the whole piece.
