Imagine hearing the works of Mussorgsky on an extremely rare period piano, the type of instrument the composer himself could have used? This is what is offered to you by the pianist Claire Chevallier, who realizes her dream with the help of collector Pierre Bouckaert, who found for her the piano dating from 1874-1875, the very period during which Mussorgsky wrote Pictures at an Exhibition.

In this work, the unique and extraordinary colours of the piano reveal the music in all its true colours – a rediscovery that could well forever change your view of the Russian composer.
