The background of the symphony is as fascinating as the composition itself. Picture at an Exhibition is actually a musical description of an exhibition of pictures painted by the celebrated painter Viktor Hartmann. Mussorgsky and Hartmann met each other sometime in 1870. Both shared an incredible passion for Russian art, and quickly developed a friendship based on their mutual love of art. Hartmann, an avid architect and artist, died in 1873 and left the Russia's art world in grief. An exhibition of more than 400 works by Hartman was arranged, which influenced Mussorgsky to compose Pictures at an Exhibition.
The music of the composition describes an imaginary stroll through the art collection. Individual movements allure their titles to the works of Hartmann. The sonata is a suite in ten movements, inspired by ten paintings. The piece of music progresses in a way that it becomes apparent that the artist is stopping at each painting and reflecting on what he sees before moving on to the next one.. As the work progresses, this consciousness seems to lessen and the music starts to flow, becoming a continuous psychological experience.
Most of the pictures by Viktor Hartmann are lost today which makes it hard to pinpoint the exact works on which Modest Mussorgsky wrote his composition. At least four paintings, however, can be identified as having influenced certain portions of the Pictures at an Exhibition. Today the composition is primarily known through an orchestral version created in 1922, by Maurice Ravel. Although the composition has been orchestrated many times, the version by Ravel is found to be closest to Mussorgsky's piano original.
