German Art-rock Band Voyager IV release Modest Mussorgsky's "Pictures At An Exhibition" on Keith Emerson's 75th Birthday

Pictures at an Exhibition was released on Saturday, November 2nd, 2019 on what was Keith Emerson's 75th Birthday, the specific date for this release was chosen to pay homage to a man who jettisoned classical music into the modern era. Voyager IV has now surpassed and expanded the definition of this classical piece. Pictures at an Exhibition is based on the Compositions of Russian composer Modest Mussorgsky (1874). Like so many of this magnificent composerís works, they were written quickly but not published, it would be 50 years after his death before a scholarly edition of this work would be published.

Pictures at an Exhibition a piece for virtuoso pianists; Maurice Ravel was commissioned for orchestration of the work in 1922 Pictures at an Exhibition came alive in a new way. This orchestration continues to be chosen for performance and recordings.

Enter, English progressive rock band Emerson, Lake & Palmer, who would bring this work to a new generation with their live album release: Pictures at an Exhibition (November 1971). It is a recording of the bandís arrangement of Mussorgskyís Pictures at an Exhibition which was performed at Newcastle City Hall on 26 March 1971.

History is now rewritten through the re-interpretation and release of Pictures at an Exhibition
