We close our Classics season with two stunning Russian masterpieces. Long before John Williams and Star Wars, Prokofiev depicted battle between heroic warriors and foreign oppressors in his epic film score to Alexander Nevsky. Mussorgsky’s ever-popular Pictures at an Exhibitions in Ravel’s colorful scoring, brings paintings to life and culminates in the thrilling “Great Gate of Kiev”.

Prokofiev Alexander Nevsky, Op. 78
Mussorgsky, arr. Ravel Pictures at an Exhibition
