Mussorgsky Pictures at an Exhibition

Mussorgsky’s masterpiece, an evocative walk through an art gallery, is the climax of this recital by renowned pianist and Turner Sims favourite Paul Lewis. The programme opens with some of Mendelssohn’s beguiling miniatures, and includes arguably the most famous of Mozart’s works for solo piano, with its ‘Turkish Rondo’ finale.

‘…a terrific recording, appealing from the first notes…Lewis’s Pictures are water-colored etchings, not heavy oil paintings, sharp in contrast but full of detail. It makes for engrossing, refreshing hearing…Paul Lewis’ rendition I could listen to just anytime and in every mood.’ Forbes.com’s review of Paul Lewis’ recording of Pictures at an Exhibition
