This painting was produced in 1911 when Kandinsky attended a musical concert by Schoenberg. Around this time he was working on a series called Impressions, where he would represent and express in oil painting, internal perceptions of outside experiences. This concert by Schoenberg was striking on Kandinsky’s life and changed his approaches to music and to the way he represented music in his visual work. This piece is striking not only for its relationship between the representational - the grand piano in the middle - and the abstract. It is also deep and flowy, exactly like a visual depiction of the music presented in this concert.
In the middle of the scene, and the most representational element that is present in this scene is the piano. There is the large black shape that is the lid of the soundboard on the back of a grand piano. In front of it, there is a black and white contrast that immediately reminds us of the keyboard. The black shape of the piano is flowing in the middle of the color yellow. Around the central form of the instrument, there are some shapes and colors that would represent the audience of this piece. People are turned to the piano, leaning towards it and are covered by its sound.
An interesting fact is that in this representation, the pianist is set in a way that its back is turned to the public, and in piano concertos, the person always plays the piano with its side turned to the crowd. Yellow is the main color and invades most of the space of the canvas. The black piano in the middle is circled by white areas that divide the space where the crowd and stage are set from the yellow flow.
The crowd is represented in several blotches of colors with no defined shapes. On the top left corner, a chaos of colors and shapes can be seen. There is a larger red area with black lines in it. The different spots of several colors and lines suggest it would be a concentration of spectators. This crowd is separated from the front row and the grand piano by a white negative space that has a yellow shape on top of it. The bottom of the painting has patterns in white, black and grey.

If you're considering not framing your painting at all, you may opt for a Gallery Wrap. The term Gallery Wrap refers to the way the canvas is stretched, which is by wrapping it around thick stretcher bars, about 1.5 inch thick, with the canvas being secured to the back rather than the sides of those bars.
