Modest Mussorgsky, Pictures at an Exhibition (Maurice Ravel's orchestration, conducted by Leonard Bernstein)

The opening of this piece is called "Promenade". It's a stately march that returns throughout the piece to separate the musical episodes. Each episode is one Picture of the titular Exposition.

My dog is sleeping on the couch. Every return of the Promenade sends him into nightmare spasms. Then the ensuing Picture restores his sweet dreams.

One of the greatest Estonian musicians passed away. I was lucky to see him live this summer. Let this be the lullaby he wrote for himself.
