Pictures at an Exhibition CD

Pictures at an Exhibition CD

Brent Fischer Orchestra presents a modern big band interpretation of the classic eponymous Mussorgsky work. PICTURES is arranged by Brent Fischer like the original work, with ten movements and five interludes totaling over forty minutes of music. The CD offers an engaging booklet filled with quotable material about the back story plus how art, science and math intersect. There are also curated photo exhibitions plus three bonus tracks, additional studio takes featuring different soloists. In his liner notes, Fischer states “These are not sequels or alternate mixes. They are equals to the other takes…While the arrangements and some key themes may be similar to the other versions, the rhythm section interpretations and solos are completely different.”

“Brent Fischer ably translates Pictures into a new big band aesthetic…skillful craftsmanship with musical credibility…non-classical adaptations have surfaced over the years…but none has been as effective at retaining the character of the original within the framework of a jazz environment.”

Don Heckman—Legendary Music Journalist/Critic

Price: $14.00

Grammy-winning American composer, arranger and pianist Dr. Clare Fischer has secured an honorable place in Jazz, Pop and R&B history. He has worked with Jazz legends such as Donald Byrd and Dizzy Gillespie before becoming the go-to-guy for arranging Pop and R&B albums from the 80s to the present. His influences range from Stravinsky to Ellington to Jobim. Dr. Fischer’s symphonic works like Rhapsody Nova, and The Duke, Swee’pea and Me, are performed by symphony orchestras around the world. A multi-instrumentalist, he has also scored music for TV and motion pictures, and with the help of his son, Brent Fischer (a composer/arranger in his own right), Clare made the leap to popular music, writing charts for Prince, Paul McCartney, Cal Tjader, Poncho Sanchez, Rufus and Chaka Khan, Brandy, Raphael Saadiq, and Carlos Santana.
