"A unique look at the story behind Mussorky's Pictures at an Exhibition. After artist and architect Victor Hartmann dies in 1873, his close friend Modest Mussorgsky falls into despair. Blaming himself and missing his friend, he refuses to create music or engage with others. But when another friend arranges an exhibition of Victor's work and forces Modest to attend, Pictures at an Exhibition is born as a tribute to friendship, artistry, and happy memories."

Abstract: It is known that Modest Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition has been popularly orchestrated, but not so well known that the brilliant pianist Vladimir Horowitz composed a piano transcription of the famous work. Horowitz composed a transcription because he claimed that Mussorgsky’s original composition was too “introverted” and that his writing was “awkward” since Mussorgsky was not much of a pianist. Horowitz’s transcription caused a strong controversy about tampering with Mussorgsky’s masterpiece, but he only sought to make a better piano sound. This analysis examines how Horowitz transformed each movement in pursuit of enhancing the character and making the piece more pianistic.

The inspiration for Mussorgsky’s most famous work came from his friend Victor Hartmann, an artist and architect. When Hartmann died at the early age of 39, Mussorgsky and the rest of the Russian artistic community were stunned, so they organized a memorial exhibit of his work. From that showing came Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition, based on the sketches, watercolors, and architectural designs displayed at the exhibition, as well as a few private canvases that Mussorgsky had seen earlier. Each selection in this stunning masterpiece is connected by "Promenade" which moves between 5/4 and 6/4, representing the uneven gait of Mussorgsky walking to the next picture. Titles: * Promenade * 1. The Gnome * Promenade * 2. The Old Castle * Promenade * 3. Tuileries: Children Quarreling at Play * 4. Bydlo * Promenade * 5. Ballet of Unhatched Chickens * 6. Samuel Goldenberg and Schmuyle * Promenade * 7. The Market Place at Limoges * 8. Catacombae * Lingua Mortua * 9. Hut of the Baba-Yaga * 10. The Great Gate of Kiev

Pictures at an Exhibition (Kartinki s vystavki) by Modest P. Mussorgsky (1839-1881) is a demanding piano work written in 1874, composed for the posthumous exhibition of paintings and drawings by the architect and illustrator Viktor A. Hartmann (1834-1873 ). Mussorgsky and Hartmann possibly met in the mid-1870s, by their mutual friend Vladimir V. Stasov (1824-1906), to whom the work is also dedicated.This urtext version is based solely on the autograph manuscript as the main source, however, the first revised edition by Nikolay A. Rimsky-Korsakov has also been consulted, which was published in 1886 by V. Bessel in Saint Petersburg, a copy that we were able to access at the National Humanities Foundation.On the cover of the manuscript is the signature of the composer and the precise date of completion: Petersburg, June 22, 1874. On the cover are written a few words by the composer's hand: "Dedicated to Vladimir Vasilyevic Stasov /" Pictures at an Exhibition "- / Memories of Viktor Hartmann. / By M. Mussorgsky. - / 1874. " On the left of the cover, the composer added: "For you, généralissime, the organizer of the exhibition, in memory of our dear Viktor, on June 27".Although the autograph is neatly written, the musical text of our edition reflects Mussorgsky's manuscript as closely as possible, although the composer was unable to provide names for the "Promenades" that follow Gnomus and Il Vecchio Castello, likewise, there are unnecessary duplications of the same note in different voices, possibly by mistake, however, these provide clues about their musical intentions for performance and which have, in some cases, been omitted to achieve the standards of modern writing. All accidental warnings that are redundant have been reduced to provide more convenience for the performer to read and study. All editor suggestions have been placed in square brackets.
