This program takes a look at two works written in tribute of friends that have passed. Mussorgsky’s most well-known work, Pictures at an Exhibition, was written for artist and architect Viktor Hartmann, heard here in an arrangement for dectet. Each of the ten pieces are based on drawings and watercolors by Hartmann during his travels abroad. Tchaikovsky’s Piano Trio in A Minor was written in tribute of the pianist, conductor and composer Nikolai Rubinstein. Tickets: www.thespco.org.

The second movement of Bach’s Suite, known as Air on the G String, features one of his most recognizable melodies, while Beethoven builds on his own admiration of Bach with a fugue-like structure in the Heiliger Dankgesang. Mendelssohn’s Nocturno was revised three times at least, eventually expanded into the Overture for Winds, while the octet makes extended use of Bach-like counterpoint along with a symphonic sensibility reminiscent of Beethoven.
