Tableaux d'une Exposition (Pictures at an Exhibition)

By Modest Petrovich Mussorgsky

Detailed Description

Tableaux d'une Exposition (Pictures at an Exhibition) (Organ). Composed by Modest Petrovich Mussorgsky (1839-1881). Arranged by Jean Guillou. For Organ (Organ). Schott. 56 pages. Schott Music #ED9807. Published by Schott Music (HL.49013108).

“A transcription justifies itself only by forgetting that it is a transcription and by incorporating the 'new' instrument into the work, as it were,” Jean Guillou writes in the preface to this edition. Especially transcribing a work for organ which was originally written for piano possesses a certain risk. Such a transcription should not sound like a piano score played on the organ. Rather, the specific possibilities offered by the organ have to be considered. That is why typically pianistic passages have to be rewritten to get an “organistic” character. Jean Guillou has masterfully succeeded in turning this great piano and orchestral work into a work for organ. Includes: The Gnome • The Old Castle • Tuileries – Childrens' Quarrelling After the Play • Bydlo • Ballet of the Unhatched Chicks • Samuel Goldengerg und Schmuyle • The Market Place of Limoges (The Big News) • Catacombae (Sepulcrum romanum) • Cum mortuis in lingua mortua • The Hut of Hens' Legs (Baba-Yaga) • The Great Gate of Kiew.
