Overview

One of the most original creations ever conceived, Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition serves as an anchor for a concert that will include works from the archives of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts projected on a giant screen. This program, under the direction of Maestro Kent Nagano, also features Haydn’s highly evocative Symphony No. 59, “Fire”; Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No. 1 performed by violinist Viviane Hagner (with whom the OSM has recorded an album devoted to the music of Unsuk Chin); and the premiere of miniatures by three Canadian composers who are drawing their inspiration from works in the permanent collection of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts – their inspiration, meaning the works are not necessarily a programmatic representation of the canvases.
