Product Information



Modest Mussorgsky wrote Pictures at an Exhibition after attending a
memorial  exhibit for his friend, artist Victor Hartmann. It took place in
February 1874 at the  exhibition gallery of St. Petersburg Architectural
Association. Mussorgsky had such a moving experience as he walked
through the exhibition that 20 days later he  had completed one of the
greatest works for the keyboard, Pictures at an Exhibition.  Sergei
Rachmaninoff was one of the 20th Century's greatest pianist and
composers. Rachmaninoff, who possessed enormous hands and had
a great command of the keyboard, was able to create some marvelous
sounds from the keyboard. The six selections on this recording
demonstrate a wide range of colors and moods that are unmistakably
Russian.
