Notes and Editorial Reviews
"Pletnev dazzles in the Mussorgsky, caressing its sublime poetry with a velvet-gloved sensitivity while throttling its chilling angularities into piano-shattering submission."
-- Julian Haylock, BBC Music Magazine
"The present modern digital release is a must-have first choice recommendation. Pletnev’s imaginative and eminently colourful interpretations of Mussorgsky’s tableaux are highly convincing with a peerless textural variety and that special quality of a truly great performer."
-- Michael Cookson , MusicWeb International
