Sinfonia Viva is thrilled to be launching this new series of Friday afternoon concerts in the museum, a perfect way to end your week.
To celebrate the new partnership, Sinfonia Viva oboist Maddy Aldis-Evans has written a brand-new piece inspired by one of the Museum of Making’s standout exhibits - its famous historic loom. Maddy’s piece is paired in this afternoon concert with Mussorgky’s famous and hugely popular Pictures at an Exhibition, arranged for wind quintet. Mussorgsky created the piece after visiting an exhibition of works by the architect and artist Viktor Hartmann, with each movement representing one of the drawings. In this performance our musicians move through this imaginary art gallery, drawing out the beauty and intrigue of the music in the wonderful, spacious setting of the Museum. Why not follow in Mussorgky’s footsteps and combine this performance with a day out at the Museum of Making, and perhaps some lunch or a delicious cake at the Museum’s River Kitchen?
⚠ Due to recent flooding at the Museum of Making they are unable to hold 'Pictures at an Exhibition' concert there on 17 Nov. It will take place at The Wardwick at Derby Museum & Art Gallery on the same date and time as before - Fri 17 Nov 2pm.
