About this concert

The Concertgebouworkest is bringing paintings to life which you won’t see in any museum! For children six years and older, the musicians are performing a concert full of colour and movement thanks to the irresistible music of Modest Musorgsky.

In this exhibition, a series of vivid paintings of the most fantastic subjects pass by. The Russian composer Musorgsky wrote the music after attending an exhibition of paintings by one of his friends. Today, no one knows what the paintings actually looked like because nearly all of them have since been lost. But the music lives on. And it’s so colourful and lively that you’ll instantly see the images the music so vividly evokes.

The paintings depict all sorts of subjects – an old castle, a frightening gnome, dancing chicks and a witch in a house on stilts. There’s certainly plenty to see and hear on this children’s concert!
