Ravel, Prokofiev, Mussorgsky

Music to waken Sleeping Beauty with a kiss: Fairy-tales inspired Ravel to write his piano suite «Ma mère l’oye» («Mother Goose»). Having set «Sleeping Beauty» to music, his friends wanted to hear more. And so the fairy-tale cycle was born. It was also Ravel who arranged Mussorgsky’s piano cycle «Pictures at an Exhibition» for orchestra, making it a worldwide success. In Grafenegg, pianist Nikolai Lugansky journeys between Russia and France, performing Sergei Prokofiev’s Third Piano Concerto along the way
