Pictures at an Exhibition

October 19-21 | 2018

Giancarlo Guerrero CONDUCTS
Leonidas Kavakos VIOLIN


Night on Bald Mountain


Violin Concerto No. 1


Pictures at an Exhibition

The vividness of Pictures at an Exhibition stands in sharp contrast to the bravado of Night on Bald Mountain. In Shostakovich’s portentous First Violin Concerto you feel the oppressive threat under which he struggled.

“Kavakos was the soloist, superbly articulate and incisive, yet rapturously lyrical.” The Guardian

This weekend's Pictures at an Exhibition concerts will include a performance of the work Night on Bald Mountain by Mussorgsky. DSO loyal fan and local Dallas artist Mike Lopez, a.k.a Mike ink, is helping us all get into the spirit with a sketch of the iconic image associated with this fan favorite.
