Saunter into a new season with Pictures at an Exhibition. Mussorgsky’s most famous composition, written in just 20 days, is a suite of 10 pieces depicting his tour of a memorial exhibition for his late friend, the painter and architect Victor Hartmann. JoAnn Falletta and the VSO will perform Ravel’s orchestration of this picturesque masterpiece. Brahms’ Academic Festival Overture makes for a triumphant opening to this program before world-class violinist Sandy Cameron takes the stage for acclaimed film composer Danny Elfman’s Violin Concerto for its first performance in the U.S. by a professional orchestra.
