Few works can match it for orchestral color, sonic impact, or sheer excitement. And no work displays the virtuosity of the Rochester Philharmonic and Arild Remmereit like Pictures at an Exhibition. Experience it—live—along with a celebration of the 2012 International Viola Congress, being held in Rochester at the Eastman School of Music, with works by Sofia Gubaidulina and Olly Wilson, with a different viola concerto performed each night. Plus, an RPO-commissioned work by Margaret Brouwer to celebrate the conclusion of Arild Remmereit’s inaugural season.
