WorksPictures at an Exhibition (orch. Ravel)
Petrushka (1947 version)
ArtistsLukas Maria Kuen (piano)
Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks
Two well-known masterpieces of Russian music complement each other perfectly on the latest CD with Mariss Jansons and the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks.
Firstly, Stravinsky's ballet music 'Petrushka' in its 1947 version which, with its smaller orchestra and more prominent piano part (played by Lukas Maria Kuen), is more of an instrumental work, or a kind of concert piece; and secondly, Mussorgsky's 'Pictures at an Exhibition'. Originally written in 1874 as a piano cycle, it can be heard here in the colourful, universal and engaging orchestral version of 1922 by Maurice Ravel, which made it world-famous.
The recordings were made in November 2014 (Mussorgsky) and April 2015 (Stravinsky) at concerts in the Herkulessaal of the Munich Residenz and in the Philharmonie im Gasteig.
