Ten Pieces - A Night on the Bare Mountain
Which is your favourite of the BBC Ten Pieces? We have a KS2 Music quiz on each of the ten composers, along with a quiz on the specific pieces too! This one is all about the piece by Modest Mussorgsky, A Night on the Bare Mountain.
A Night On The Bare Mountain is an atmospheric piece which tells the story of a meeting of witches on a mountainside. A wild and frightening party goes on throughout the night until dawn when a church bell sounds and the witches disappear. Mussorgsky was never happy with the piece and the version we know today was arranged by his friend and fellow composer Rimsky-Korsakov.
Mussorgsky's A Night On The Bare Mountain is every bit as atmospheric as its title suggests. Let's find out how it is that the composer manages to raise those neck hairs!
