Musorgsky: Pictures from an exhibition & other works

Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Orchestra celebrate Musorgsky with a new recording of two of his most cherished works, Pictures from an Exhibition and Night on Bare Mountain (performed here in Mussorgsky’s original version).

Gergiev is at his finest conducting these paragons of Musorgsky’s work, featured alongside which are the seldom heard Songs and Dances of Death, composed during the years 1875 to 1877 and left languishing unpublished during the composer’s lifetime.
