Pictures at an Exhibition: after Mussorgsky
for Jazz Trio and Orchestra featuring Yaron Gottfried
This remake brings a contemporary interpretation to the timeless masterpiece by Mussorgsky. Presented as a complete suite of 12 Movements arranged, orchestrated and recomposed for Jazz trio (Piano, Bass, Drums) and Orchestra), the melodies and themes of Mussorgsky’s original version are dressed in new colors andinspire new forms for the jazz trio to improvise. Each movement is approached differently while being transformed into a live, authentic encounter between classical and jazz, material and improvisation.
