Mussorgsky - Pictures at an Exhibition for Tuba or Bass Trombone & PianoCherry Classics
Mussorgsky (Moussorgsky), Modest – Pictures at an Exhibition for Tuba or Bass Trombone & Piano.
Pictures at an Exhibition was originally written as a suite in ten movements for Piano in 1874.
It has become a showpiece for virtuoso Pianists and further known through a number of orchestrations and arrangements with Maurice Ravel's being the most performed by far. Ralph Sauer's landmark arrangement very successfully captures the spirit of the composition by carefully planning rests and managing the technical split between Tubist/Bass Trombonist and Pianist.
This arrangement is down a 4th from the Tenor Trombone version, is about 30+ minutes in length and playable by advanced performers. It is a major new addition to the Tuba/Bass Trombone repertoire.
