Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition
Label: MIRARE
Released: May 12, 2012

Russian composers have never ceased to celebrate their homeland in the form of tales and legends. At the frontiers of the supernatural, Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition focuses on the eternal truths of childhood and death. In epic fashion, Nicolai Medtner's Piano Sonata mingles a Romantic sweep with the tragic elements of life, whereas Taneyev returns to the origins of the great musical forms with his Prelude and Fugue. With panache to burn, pianist David Kadouch assumes the role of storyteller in this selection of musical legends, mythical or imagined, taken from Russia's long history.
