5.0 out of 5 stars a low rent mansion 26 May 2007
By David A. Baer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As I settle in to write this review, perfectly suitable used copies of this early Naxos CD are going for a dollar on amazon.com. Where do you find value like that? It's like scratching around for an affordable one-room apartment and then stumbling on a tidy mansion whose owner will turn over to you for $[...]/month.

Mussorgsky and Borodin, 19th-century Russian nationalist composers both of them, are often paired on musical offerings, not least because Borodin's pieces are short enough to require a complement. These full-flower Romantic pieces are a great introduction for listeners who see nothing interesting in 'classical' music. The Russians are, if anything, interesting.

Mussorgsky's 'Pictures' is also an enduring anthology of something close to tone poems. Originally written for keyboard, Ravel orchestrated the works for a large assembly of musicians.

Daniel Nazareth and the Slovak Philharmonic are precise, spirited, and convincing. There is absolutely nothing sub-par about this recording, which helped to establish Naxos as a budget line on its way to something big.

5.0 out of 5 stars A "Pictures" to compete with the best... 13 Aug 2001
By John O'Neill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is an excellent example of the many Naxos recordings from the 80s which helped establish this label as... well not your average budget label. Naxos often produces classical recordings which are in every way equal to the majors, every way but the price that is.
This well filled disc features fine performances of Modest Mussorgsky's two best known works: "Pictures at an Exhibition" and the demonic "Night on Bare Mountain" (yes the work used in Disney's "Fantasia"). This is a fine DDD recording of "Pictures" and due to the quality of the perforance and the generous playing time (68 minutes) I've replaced my Maazel recording with this. (My only complaint - and it is a minor one - "Night on Bare Mountain" could have been a tad "fiercer" in it's interpretation.)
The two Borodin works ("In the Steps of Central Asia" and "Polovtsian Dances" - one of the themes served as the basis for "Stranger in Paradise"?) are just icing on the cake and round out this excellent recording.
One of the best "Pictures" on disc... certainly a bargain at this price and even a strong competitor at full price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unpretentious, now superceded by Naxos' new SACD version 21 Aug 2004
By Leslie Richford - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This 1987 recording was one of Naxos's first publications and as such was quite a success: The Slovakian orchestra directed by Indian conductor Daniel Nazareth presents Ravel's famous orchestration of Mussorgsky's piano masterpiece in a lively, unpretentious way that makes the character of the individual pieces very obvious and is therefore ideal for the "beginner" just getting to know this music. There is some very colorful brass playing which is worth hearing. As the "Exhibition" only lasts a good 35 minutes, Naxos have also provided some interesting "encores": The Rimsky-Korsakoff version of "Night on a Bare Mountain" with its frantic, partying witches is a loud and noisy piece with a quiet close that bears listening to any number of times. The two pieces by Borodin are full of tunes that seem familiar and have in fact often been used in modern songs. The sound of the CD is acceptable, but no more than this: If you want a contrast, just listen to Naxos' new Ukrainian recording of the Mussorgsky with Theodore Kuchar at the baton. Here, the brass and the percussion jump out at you with incredible clarity and force, the result both of superior playing from the Ukrainian National Symphony Orchestra and of DSD recording for Super Audio standard.
