The program starts with the colorful and melodic “Roman Carnival Overture” by romantic French composer H. Berlioz.

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!
