I know why Mussorgsky composed Pictures. I know that each movement is based on a picture painted by a friend of his. What I am wondering is what Bydlo was a picture of; what it represents.
Anyone have any suggestions on how to persuade an orchestra conductor to allow me to play the bydlo solo on my tuba, instead of auditioning a euph to play it?
