Coinciding with the Museum’s 25th anniversary, the Bilbao Symphony Orchestra (BOS) is celebrating its 100th anniversary. To celebrate both anniversaries, the Museum will host a concert open to all visitors. The program will include Pictures at an Exhibition, the suite composed by Modest Mussorgsky for the memorial exhibition of his friend Viktor Hartmann. The music depicts Mussorgsky’s tour of the exhibition, with each of the ten numbers of the suite serving as a musical illustration of an individual work by Hartmann. Originally a piano composition, it was adapted by Maurice Ravel into a picturesque work for full symphony orchestra. In addition, BOS will play Andromède, a powerful, dense symphonic poem by unjustly forgotten French composer Augusta Holmès. It will be a great occasion to celebrate friendship and dialogue between the various arts.
