Notes & Reviews:

"[Jarvi] introduces a little twist in Ravel's orchestration of Pictures at an Exhibition in that the original French published edition of 1929 is consulted for correction of errors and specifics on phrasing and dynamics. A whole industry of activity has grown up around Mussorgsky's scores, not to mention Rimsky-Korsakov's and others' alleged meddling with them, resulting in a donnybrook that has raged pro and con among musicologists and performers alike for decades. Nevertheless, amid all of that confusion, no one else thought to go back and review the familiar Ravel score, and there is every reason to." -All Music Guide

BBC Music Magazine
Satan's revels on Bare Mountain creep upon us with a fabulously controlled crescendo before unravelling with crystal-clear textures and masterful negotiations of the many tempo changes. Both here and in some of the Pictures stopped horns and trumpets strike home as never before; nor have I ever noticed the contrabassoon so prominent on the bottom line of the 'Gnomus' juggernaut.

Gramophone Magazine
Impressive gradations of brass in "Catacombs" bring real trumpet-topped "height" to the sound and incisively caught timpani and bass drum propel "Baba-Yaga" at a pace suggesting she means business.
