Svitlana Smaga

On Saturday, March 18th

Svitlana Smaga performed

Modest Petrovich Mussorgsky’s

“Pictures at an Exhibition”

at POPS Performing Arts and Cultural Center in Dunsmuir

Tacoma pianist Svitlana Smaga captivated Saturday evening concert-goers with a powerful performance of Mussorsky’s piano masterpiece "Pictures at an Exhibition." Ms. Smaga, originally from Ukraine, presented a pre-performance slide show and explanation of the paintings around which the suite was composed. Her piano virtuosity and native interpretation of the Russian music was particularly special to the event. Moods from the opening and recurring ‘Promenade’ theme depicting the wandering in an art gallery to the final ‘Boatyr Gates’ varied in intensity and character with the individual pictures Mussorgsky was contemplating at the exhibition.  The exact emotion for each painting was clearly and eloquently expressed by Ms. Smaga, bringing the crowd to its feet with thunderous applause. Many attending mentioned their thrill at hearing this great music by an excellent pianist in our area. Music by the Mountain sincerely thanks Ms. Smaga for contributing to our ongoing classical music program.

Here are a few photos from the concert:
