You set the price! Words: 7,490. Language: Commonwealth English. Published: November 2, 2011. Category: Fiction
Based on fact, and historically accurate, 'For Viktor' is written in Modest Mussorgsky’s own voice as he guides a young companion around the picture exhibition held in honour of his friend Viktor Hartman at the Academy of Artists in Saint Petersburg, Russia, in 1874. It was this exhibition which inspired Mussorgsky to write the suite of music he called 'Pictures at an Exhibition'.
