An overwhelming performance of Mussorgsky's masterpiece, Pictures at an Exhibition by Russian virtuoso Vladimir Ovchinnikov.
Ovchinnikov made an impressive career after winning the 1987 Leeds piano competition. He recorded extensively for EMI, notably definitive performances of Liszt's Transcendental Studies and the Rachmaninov Etudes-tableaux. This Mussorgsky was recorded for Collins Classics, in the great acoustics of the Henry Wood Hall, London. As a substantial filler a scintillating performance of Shostakovich's first Piano Concerto, with the Philharmonia conducted by Maxim Shostakovich, the composer's son. Trumpeter is the fabulous John Wallace.
