TCHAIKOVSKY Francesca da Rimini TCHAIKOVSKY Violin Concerto MUSSORGSKY Pictures at an Exhibition The Mussorgsky suite was written as a tribute to the works of the painter-architect Victor Hartmann. It displays a wide range of moods, from the sinister melancholy of Gnomus to the grand triumphalism of The Great Gate of Kiev. Tchaikovsky's Francesca da Rimini opens the concert; a richly passionate and frantic piece that perfectly sets the tone for an evening of highly evocative music.
