MUSSORGSKY, M.P.: Pictures at an Exhibition / Songs and Dances of Death (arr. P. Breiner) (New Zealand Symphony, Breiner) (Blu-Ray Audio)

Originally written as a set of piano pieces, Mussorgsky’s splendid Pictures at an Exhibition translate the artistry of the composer’s friend Victor Hartmann into unforgettable music. Mussorgsky’s remarkable song cycles contrast encounters with death against the often uneasy world of children in The Nursery. Peter Breiner’s new orchestrations create a Pictures at an Exhibition for our times, achieving contemporary sounds through unusual instrumental combinations, right up to a spectacular Great Gate of Kiev performed by 104 musicians.

Sound format: PCM Stereo / DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1

Note: This Blu-ray Audio Disc is only playable on Blu-ray Disc players and not compatible with standard CD or DVD players.
