Grade 2

Duration: 5:51

This show features selections from Mussourgsky’s work “Pictures at an art gallery".  The piece opens with a trumpet solo on the “Promenade” theme.  This leads into a dramatic full band up-tempo variation on the opening theme with a brief woodwind interlude from another Mussourgsky work “Night on Bald Mountain”.  The next section is a ballad on “The Old Castle”.  This features an optional alto sax solo on a haunting Spanish theme.  This is followed abruptly by “Baba Yaga”, a barn burner section punctuated with several percussion interludes.  This section segues into “The Great Gate of Kiev” and brings our show to an exciting finale!
