Pictures at an exhibition
Mussorgsky's music takes us across the threshold into another world: surrealism avant la lettre.
Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an exhibition takes us across the threshold into another world, where we encounter gnomes, talking skulls and a hut on chicken legs: surrealism avant la lettre. Even more amazing is The Exterminating Angel, which brings the universe of film legend Luis Buñuel to the concert hall: a dazzling symphony in which the familiar and the disturbing go hand in hand.
