Inspired by a short story by Chekhov, Rachmaninoff’s early orchestral work The Rock depicts the intimate relation between Nature and man. Influenced by his idol Mozart, Tchaikovsky composed his Variations on a Rococo Theme to express a similar sense of blissful contentment. Mussorgsky’s piano masterpiece Pictures at an Exhibition, written in memory of his artist friend Viktor Hartmann, chronicles the composer’s musical responses to each of these artworks.
