The Mussorgsky works were recorded in All Hallows Church, Gospel Oak, London, in July 1973. This is an 8-track original analogue recording presented here in 5ch. The orchestra was spread around the conductor, so we hear some instruments come from the rear which perhaps some listeners might find a bit disconcerting, although I enjoy it very much. Even the conductor wouldn’t hear the music like this while on the podium in a regular concert environment; however, it is a pleasant if unusual listening experience. Audio buffs will relish the wide dynamic range of these recordings—no question that sonically this is 1 of the finest recordings of Pictures. While these 2 works made a rather short LP in their original issue, it is inexcusable to have such brief playing time on CD.
