Meeting Place: Museum Island

6pm Opening Concert in the Colonnaded Courtyard during the Long Night 2015

Here are pictures you can hear! Let Modest Mussorgskys 'Pictures of an Exhibition' get you in the mood for the Long Night. The composer wrote the piano cycle in 1874, following a visit to an exhibition in memory of his friend, the painter Viktor Hartmann. The German Chamber Orchestra Berlin will be opening the Long Night of Museums with Mussorgsky's world-famous work in a string orchestra arrangement by Robert G. Patterson, set amidst the grand stage of the Museum Island.
