The orchestral version of Moussorgsky’s musical picture gallery has always been one of the most popular works ever heard in concert halls all over the world. Originally written for the piano, the unsuccessful composer never heard the work in all its symphonic glory, although many of his contemporaries had often been tempted to arrange his works. As early as 1891, ten years after his death, Mikhail Tushmalov – a pupil of Rimsky-Korsakov – presented a first version. However, it is Maurice Ravel’s orchestral version from 1922 that remains unsurpassed to this day. His arrangement amalgamates the original force and angularity of the piano with the brilliance of a modern orchestra.

The transparent and powerful performance by the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra is complemented by an equally fascinating version from one of Mercury’s main pianists, Byron Janis. In listening to the two interpretations one after the other it becomes clear as to how closely Ravel remained true to the original version while still managing to imbue his genial orchestral version with his own tonal conception. The solo piano recording, released for the first time on vinyl, will certainly be of special interest to record collectors.

This two-LP set includes as a very special bonus the piano-only version of Pictures at an Exhibition cut at 45 RPM. This is how this work was originally composed though no recording of that version has previously been released. The full symphonic version of Pictures at an Exhibition is cut here at 33 1/3.

Features:
• 180g Vinyl Double LP
• Never previously released on
• Includes Byron Janis's performance of Moussorgsky's original piano version recorded in September 1961 in New York.

Musicians:
Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra
Antal Dorati, conductor

Modest Moussorgsky (1839-1881)

1. Pictures at an Exhibition (orchestration by Ravel)
Khovanshchina
2. Prelude
3. Dance of the Persian Slaves

Original piano version recorded in September 1961 in New York.
