Lili Boulanger’s short orchestral piece, the last she wrote, uses shifting, ambiguous harmonies and subtle orchestration to create an intriguing impression. Tchaikovsky’s piano concerto set the pattern for many future pieces with its dramatic confrontation between heroic soloist and eloquent orchestra. Mussorgsky’s suite of musical pictures includes castles, chicks and catacombs, culminating in the unforgettable grandeur of the great Gate of Kiev.
