The Hut on Fowl's Legs


The English composer Benjamin Britten wrote The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra, Op. 34 to teach children the instrument families of the symphony orchestra. Based on a theme by Henry Purcell, he wrote thirteen variations and a fugue that display the virtues and tones of the strings, the woodwinds, the brass and the percussion. Maurice Ravel's orchestration of Pictures at an Exhibition by Modest Mussorgsky is astonishing due to its brilliant symphonic palette. The piece is inspired by paintings of gnomes, an ox cart, a ballet of chicks and catacombs, among others.
