The concert presents two new and vibrant interpretations of the renowned Mussorgsky composition, led by two world class conductors.

The first half, conducted by Maestro Yaacov Bergman, presents a version of Pictures at an Exhibition for chamber orchestra by Julian Yu that invokes musical color found only in chamber music. With frequent use of musical elements of Yu’s native China, it often uses metal percussion instruments (such as vibraphone, glockenspiel, bells and celesta) to give a humorous Chinese flavor to the work. The work is paired with a dance video created especially for this performance in the intimate and beautiful environment of the Agnes Flanagan Chapel.

The second half, led by Israeli conductor and composer Yaron Gottfried, is a version for jazz trio and chamber orchestra. The melodies and themes of Mussorgsky’s original version are dressed in new colors and inspire new forms for the jazz trio to improvise. Each movement is approached differently, while being transformed into a live, authentic encounter between classical and jazz.

Jazz Trio:

  • Yaron Gottfried, Piano
  • David Captein, Bass
  • Gary Hobbs, Drums

    I would love to win these tickets for my mother.
    She is one of the most amazing people in my life. This year I would love to do something extra special and surprise her with a one of a kind gift because she is a one of a kind lady. I wont go into details but she is going through a very emotional time right now as well as just opening a new business and trying to run it by herself. With everything she has done in her life to help better peoples lives she deserves a night out to relax and unwind and just enjoy a night out with the people she loves. I really hope to win these tickets for her to show her she still worth every bit of energy she puts out into the world. I know she loves music and I feel this would be a perfect night out for her.
