Pictures at an Exhibition

January 6 @ 7:30 pm

Nashville Symphony | Giancarlo Guerrero, conductor | Sasha Cooke, mezzo-soprano

PROGRAM

Maurice Ravel: Valses Nobles et Sentimentales
John Corigliano: One Sweet Morning | Live Recording
Modest Mussorgsky, orch. Ravel: Pictures at an Exhibition

Giancarlo Guerrero explores the range of emotions of art borne from grief. After visiting a friend’s posthumous art exhibit, Mussorgsky exclaimed “Ideas, melodies, come to me of their own accord.” He penned Pictures at an Exhibition with a feverish intensity, and the result is a work that showcases the virtuosity found within the orchestra. Sasha Cooke joins us for One Sweet Morning, John Corigliano’s achingly beautiful song cycle written to commemorate the tenth anniversary of 9/11.
