MODEST MUSSORGSKY (1839-1881): Songs and Dances of Death, The Nursery, Pictures at an Exhibition (all orch. Peter Breiner [b.1957]).
Catalogue Number: 12P040
Description: In which the ever-industrious Breiner not only does his usual thing in orchestrating the two song cycles but also decides to give us another Pictures. The latter sure doesn't sound like Ravel! 104 musicians participate in a gargantual Great Gate of Kiev. Pure fun and cheap; what's not to like? New Zealand Symphony Orchestra; Peter Breiner.
