K. Emerson             Piano Concerto No. 1
M. Mussorgsky       Pictures at an Exhibition

 

Who knew that Keith Emerson of the 70s band, Emerson, Lake & Palmer composed a piano concerto?  His very original Piano Concerto No. 1 takes Prokofiev, Shostakovich and even Gershwin as models., Francisco Montero, winner of the Olga Kern and Windsor International Piano Competitions will be featured.

The program starts with the colorful and melodic “Roman Carnival Overture” by romantic French composer H. Berlioz. Mussorgsky’s masterpiece, Pictures at an Exhibition, will be the grand finale of yet another grand season. Orchestrated by Ravel, Pictures is an homage to artist, architect and designer Viktor Hartmann.  Inspired by his illustrations, Mussorgsky astonishingly depicts children, Baba Yaga in her wooden house on chicken legs, catacombs, gates and even rattling carts! An Art exhibit will accompany the piece.
