Pictures at an Exhibition


Carwithen - Bishop Rock Barber - Cello concerto, soloist Dan Brandon Arnold - Tam O'Shanter overture Mussorgsky - Pictures at an Exhibition Bishop Rock is a vivid and original work by British composer Doreen Carwithen, inspired by the surging Atlantic around a remote lighthouse. The concert provides a rare chance to hear Samuel Barber’s cello concerto, written while he was on active military service during World War II, in collaboration with the Soviet émigré cellist Raya Garbousova. Less well known than his violin concerto, perhaps because of the immense technical demands of the solo part, the work was described by the composer as ‘lyric and romantic’. In the second half of the concert, interactive artist James Mayhew will illustrate Mussorgsky’s famous ‘Pictures at an Exhibition’ and the adventures of Tam O’Shanter, musically portrayed by Malcolm Arnold. CCSO is conducted by Robert Hodge.
