Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition for children

In early July, the Fauré Quartet performed Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition as part of a unique series of concerts specifically designed for children and families. This project, which originated a number of years ago at the Philharmonie Luxembourg, travelled to the Baltic Sea this summer to the towns of Greifswald and Schwiessel (near Rostock). Together with two actors, the musicians of the Quartet transformed themselves and Mussorgsky into a living canvas. This theatrical presentation helped children to become familiar with classical music in a new, unique way.
