This past Sunday I attended a most delightful presentation at Baird Auditorium, in which Rob Kapilow spent an hour analyzing Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition"*, with the help of pianist Yuliya Gorenman. After this and a brief intermission, she performed the entire work. The performance was followed by a question and answer session. The title pretty much says it all. If you've ever wondered why a particular piece of music is well-regarded, Kapilow explains it. If you have some music background you'll get more out of it, but even my musically illiterate** husband was able to follow, enjoy, and understand it. Lots more information here.
