Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
Carlo Ponti... brings out the Russian-ness of Mussorgsky's inspiration with each of the pictures sharply characterised... The wind solos are specially impressive, as is the horn descant in the "Great Gate of Kiev". In short, an excellent version of a much-recorded showpiece. Night on the Bare Mountain comes in the highly unauthentic but undeniably effective Rimsky version, brilliantly played here with powerful bite.
