About Season Opening Gala Concert: Noseda conducts Carlos Simon & Pictures at an Exhibition

The stage is set to celebrate a spectacular new season and the return of NSO Music Director Gianandrea Noseda! The glamorous evening begins with Rossini, Elgar, and Kennedy Center Composer-in-Residence Carlos Simon’s Fate Now Conquers—an invigorating, emotional curtain-raiser inspired by Beethoven’s journal entry of that phrase from the Iliad.

Music imitates art in Pictures at an Exhibition, a perfect fusion of drama and beauty based on the work of Mussorgsky’s close friend Victor Hartmann, a Russian painter who died at age 39. Unfolding with joyous energy and daring surprise, Mussorgsky’s musical scenes are as evocative as the pictures themselves.
