xx Mussorgsky- Pictures at an Exhibition
November 14, 2006, 08:28:50 PM by dnephi

What do you know of this piece? 

1. It is a piece of program music-a series of episodes all flowing into one another continually.
2. It is approximately a half hour long.
3. It's by Mussorgsky
4. It has been orchestrated by both Ravel and Rimsky-Korsakov, the latter being superior.

Is it very difficult?
Is it showy?
Any stories about it, perhaps?


xx Triple flats in Moussgorsky's Gnome
January 24, 2007, 10:08:09 PM by notturno

I'm working on Pictures at an Exhibition: the Gnome, and came across this symbol.



I'm confused by the 3rd note: the E with two flats in front of it, and then a third flat in the key signature.  On the piano the Ebb should be the equivalent of D natural, right? But with the flat in the Key Signature should it be the equivalent of D flat?

Thanks.

Joe


xx "The Great Gate" from Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition - large leaps
October 13, 2007, 04:34:18 PM by elsie07

I am having trouble with the short appoggiaturas (leaping from the appoggiatura to the main chord) in measures 18-29 and 162-169 of "The Great Gate" from Pictures at an Exhibition.  Also, the large leaps of both hands in opposite directions in m. 89-106 and 114-161. Tongue I know these sections hands separate, but I am having trouble joining hands without missing half the notes because I watch where one hand lands but not the other.  I try it at a slow tempo, but even then I can't seem to get it.

Any suggestions for how to execute these large leaps?  Any help is much appreciated! Smiley

xx Pictures at an Exhibition
June 29, 2008, 12:31:06 AM by numberwizard68

I am looking for another piece to work on, and I was thinking of working on Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition. The two parts of the piece that I like the most happen to be The Great Gates of Kiev and The Hut of Baba-Yaga. My question is, would it be feasible for me to play The Great Gates of Kiev, and does anyone have any suggestions? I know that I really should learn the whole thing chronologically, but I won't have very much time after the summer is over to work on my piano. Also, is The Hut of Baba-Yaga as crazy to play as it looks?

For those who are wondering, things that I have recently played are Beethoven's Moonlight (1st and 2nd movements only), Mozart's Twinkles, Bach's Gigue from Partitia No. 1.

xx A New Way of Playing Pictures at an Exhibition

So what do you all think of this? I know many of you are probably downright sick of this piece. I know I am. However, I think it has inspired a new curiosity in me and I would definitely buy this if and when it comes out on DVD, just like when Andsnes made that documentary that included him playing Grieg on the top of a mountain in Norway (that was a great DVD, by the way, which I recommend).


xx It is possible to play one part from Moussorgsky's suite "Pictures"?

I'm "building" my summer repertoire....

Roll Eyes Please write your suggestions. Smiley It will help me.

Dr. Robert J Keane, pianist
Australia

"I was in Poland the past summer to give 2 concerts. At the last minute they requested some Chopin, which I had not brought with me. So, I google-searched for classical downloads and found your site. I was able to print out excellent editions of the pieces I needed within minutes. To find the scores locally would have been inpossible as it was a smaller town, the nearest music store 45 minutes away."

"Piano Street has been a wonderful tool to me as both a pianist and a piano teacher. I can browse the collection for pieces I want to play and/or have my students play. The difficulty rating system that Piano Street uses enables me to search by difficulty level for pieces at my students' various playing levels. It is helpful that many of the scores include an audio clip of the piece being played. I have recommended to my advanced students that they also join Piano Street since getting sheet music from there is a much less expensive alternative to ordering and paying for the music.
