MUSSORGSKY Pictures at an Exhibition

Acclaimed for his “mercurial wit and dazzling clarity of fingerwork” (BBC Magazine), Alexei Volodin is in demand by the most prestigious concerts halls worldwide. In his Hong Kong recital debut, the award-winning pianist will present two of the most significant piano works by Nikolai Medtner and Modest Mussorskgy.


An important genre in Medtner’s complete oeuvre, the composer’s ‘skazki’ (fairy tales) depict a broad spectrum of poetic imageries and exquisite architectonics composed in different periods of his life. After the kaleidoscopic selection of 12 mesmerising fairy tales, the audience will hear Mussorgsky’s iconographic piano suites, Pictures at an Exhibition, inspired by Viktor Hartmann’s paintings and imagined through Volodin’s vividly drawn tonal sketches.


國際間享負盛名的鋼琴家霍羅丁是蘇黎世格薩.安達國際大賽冠軍得主,與他合作過的世界樂團和頂尖指揮不盡其數。他將在香港首次的獨奏會中帶來俄國大師麥哲納與穆索斯基的經典,「將音樂的奧義與情感層層解構,在指觸之間流露精湛琴技 (The Classical Source) 」。麥哲納的《神話》是作曲家畢生最重要的作品之一,音樂富詩意且結構細膩。穆索斯基的《圖畫展覽會》靈感則源自俄國畫家哈特曼畫作,所描繪的各個意象將透過霍羅丁的詮釋活現眼前。
