HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Eterna) Modest Mussorgsky – Pictures At An Exhibition/Night On Bald Mountain (Markevitch)

front-small-boxset
Igor Markevitch always had by this piece a very special affinity, having therefore an absolute domain of its whole significance; as a matter of fact, every time he conducted this hyper known work he added new, smart and significant details of expression, that enriched and ennobled still more the status of this composition. Markevitch directed this performance with dark poetry (The catacombs, and Baba Yaga), zealous and almost imperceptible accents carefully sculpted in the score.
This version to my mind must be included among the most pyramidal readings ever made. You will not find optimistic brightness, or radiant expressiveness, but a fervent Elegy in memory of Victor Hartman. So, please, take into account this memorable choice at the moment you demand a major and even most penetrating result.

Reposted, now with FF links
Great works by Liszt and well played by the orchestra. It’s a nice switch from his usual piano compositions. Put this right up there with the other classical musical masters. Definitely buy this album – you won’t be disappointed.
