         This week we are listening to: Night on a Bare (or Bald) Mountain by Mussorgsky.                        




Modest Mussorgsky was a Russian composer. He was writing his music during the time we now call the Romantic period. Music written at this time was much more dramatic than previously.

Night on a Bare (or Bald) Mountain is a tone poem. This is a piece of music that describes something in sound. This piece of music describes witches gathering on a mountain on a special night.
