Program

The history of this concert tells us that in 2020 the outstanding Ukrainian composer Myroslav Skoryk made a unique program, combining his works of recent years with the music of probably the most mysterious XIX century composer, Modest Mussorgsky. The great idea of ​​a new reading of Mussorgsky’s famous cycle «Pictures from the Exhibition» (in the version for chamber orchestra and percussion ensemble), the work which lasted more than two years, became Skoryk’s last big creative project.
