 Pictures at an Exhibition is a suite of ten pieces (plus a recurring, varied Promenade) composed for the piano by Russian composer Modest Mussorgsky in 1874.

The suite is Mussorgsky's most famous piano composition and has become a showpiece for virtuoso pianists. It has become further known through various orchestrations and arrangements produced by other musicians and composers, with Maurice Ravel's arrangement being by far the most recorded and performed.

This  movement (No.4.Bydlo)  is a ponderous characterization of the lumbering of a large Polish ox cart.

It is arranged for double wind quintet and tuba. 

The horn takes the solo line. ( given to tuba by Ravel).

For ease of performance/reading this solo is enharmonically written using flats, whereas the remainder of the 2 horn part, as in Ravel, uses sharps

The horns have no key signature.

N.B. The clarinet parts are for clarinet in A
