Description:
Afterwalk is an imagining of the reminiscences that Modest Mussorgsky might have had after his promenade through the exhibition of his dear friend Thomas Hartmann's works in 1874 in St. Petersburg, which he described in his monumental and famous composition, Pictures at an Exhibition.
In the A section, series of big chords sound in a sometimes unexpected order - perhaps musical images of great pillars in the museum space.
The melody of the Promenade from Pictures at an Exhibition is quoted in free form, threading through the B-sections. It is fragmented and hesitating, played against deep bass tones with harmonic colors produced by a prepared device on the strings of those pitches.
The coda brings the melody of the Promenade back in a high register with an added 'prepared piano' effect, caused by chains laid on the strings of the piano.
