We will offer transportation to the Cincinnati Symphony’s performance of Pictures at an Exhibition. After fleeing Europe for America during World War II, Korngold made a significant impact as a Hollywood film score composer. His violin concerto, which Simone Lamsma performs with “beautiful sonority, heavenly high notes and a perfect technique (Jornal do Brasil),” was a compilation of music from his scores for Another Dawn, Juárez, Anthony Adverse and The Prince and the Pauper. The concerts close with the marvelous Pictures at an Exhibition, Mussorgsky’s whimsical and imaginative depictions of sketches and watercolors created by his recently deceased friend, Victor Hartmann.
