Stephen Ackert

Head of Music at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, Stephen is committed to developing projects that enhance opportunities for audiences to experience great music and great art simultaneously. Projecting slides of artwork from the NGA and other celebrated Art collections, Stephen will narrate this programme of music by Debussy and Mussorgsky
which features pianist Míceál O’Rourke.

Míceál O’Rourke

Reviewing previous concerts by Míceál at the National Gallery of Art, Kennedy Center, and Philips Collection, Washington Post critics referred to his “singular poise and velvet cat’s paw touch”, “his most wonderfully quiet hands” and his being “a pianist who reinvents the standards of the past”.

Programme:

Debussy: Preludes Book 1
Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition
