Who wrote pictures at an exhibition?

Pictures at an Exhibition was first a piano work by Modest Mussorgsky, which was composed by him upon hearing of the passing of his friend the painter of the works. It was then orchestrated by Ravel a number of years earlier. Each work describes a different picture, as if they were seen at an exhibition in a gallery. One of them describes the little hut on chicken legs, and is from a Russian folk tale, "The hut of Baba Yaga". The last one is the most dramatic and presents us with the "Great gates of Kiev", the capitol city of the Ukraine.


Did Mussorksky's 1874 piano version of Pictures at an Exhibition influence Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture from 1880?

It is unlikely, as Mussorgsky's suite, although composed in 1874, was not printed until 1886, by which time Mussorgsky had been dead for 5 years. There is no available information as to the first performance, likely given by Mussorgsky himself, so any connection to Tchaikovsky can only be speculative.
