Mussorgsky played the piano. One of his most famous works is the piano suite "Pictures at an Exhibition," a series of pieces with the titles of paintings by his friend Viktor Hartmann, interspersed with a varying Promenade theme, the whole meant to depict someone walking in an exhibition of the paintings.
