Brahms Violin Concerto
Mussorgsky Pictures at an Exhibition
Kahchun Wong conductor
Francesca Dego violin
It might have been the vodka talking, but when Modest Mussorgsky went to an art exhibition his imagination went into overdrive. Talking skulls, dancing chickens, ancient castles and a hut with hen’s legs: Pictures at an Exhibition is a riot of colour. Going to an art gallery was never meant to be this much fun, but for guest conductor Kahchun Wong it’s merely the climax of a whole concert powered by the imagination. Because when violinist Francesca Dego scales the Alpine peaks of Brahms’s radiant Violin Concerto, every note speaks straight to the heart.
