BBC Symphony Orchestra: Pictures at Exhibitions - Aldeburgh Festival 2022

At Snape Maltings

Three pieces inspired by pictures at art exhibitions - by Mussorgsky, Respighi and, in the form of a first performance, the late, great Oliver Knussen.

Mussorgsky's brilliant translation of paintings into music in Pictures at an Exhibition have inspired others to take similar approaches. Respighi's shimmering strings and soaring flutes are a good match to Botticelli's light textures.

Audiences will be treated to the posthumous first performance (and a second performance!) of the late Oliver Knussen's piece interpreting pictures and objects seen at the Cleveland Museum of Art, from Goya and Gaugin to a Fabergé clock.
