Notes and Editorial Reviews

It's been quite a while since Markus Schirmer visited Modest Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition. Despite the considerable competition, the recording has received excellent reviews. Schirmer impresses with well-thought-out, succinct and precisely-measured effects, which are shown off to their best advantage on the Fazioli piano in the List Halle in Graz, Austria. In the process, he never lapses into cheap showmanship: he simply conveys the impressions triggered by the pictures themselves. Actually, the recording should have appeared a while ago on LP. However, the delay has also had its advantages: we can now offer it in TACET's famous reverse playback, which, with suitable music, offers a greater listening experience than was hitherto Read more possible on vinyl.
