Album Summary

>Mussorgsky, Modest : Pictures at an Exhibition (Kartinki s vïstavski), for piano
>Schumann, Robert : Carnaval, Op. 9
Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Both Schumann and Mussorgsky were wild, imaginative composers who found means of expression that went beyond the conventional. On his new Myrios Classics recording, pianist Kirill Gerstein offers an unusual yet logical pairing of Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition and Schumann's Carnaval, cycles of piano pieces in which the picturesque element was the departure point that fired the composer's imagination.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Funkhaus Berlin Nalepastrasse (11/19/2013-11/22/2013).
