Notes & Reviews:

"It was an original and fascinating idea to record both the original Mussorgsky score of 'Night on the Bare Mountain' alongside the Rimsky arrangement, for in many ways they are entirely different works, something Theodore Kuchar underlines by his contrasting interpretations. It may be unfashionable to say so, but however inspired and original Mussorgsky's draft score is in conception, the all-but-recomposed Rimsky-Korsakov piece is the finer work overall." - Ivan March, Gramophone
