From majestic castles and lush gardens to mysterious hidden underground passageways and bustling markets, these are some of the indelible images evoked in Mussorgsky's famed 'Pictures At An Exhibition.' This volume of Naxos Musical Journey takes you on a tour of St. Petersburg's opulent castles; through Yalta's delightful fairy-tale garden and then a colorful marketplace filled with exotic birds. A train ride propels you through the haunting Russian landscape. Explore the eerie underground caves at Odessa that echo with stories of adventure and intrigue. Experience the intimacy of great Russian art and the glorious expanse of the Moscow nightscape. Mussorgsky's Pictures comes to life for an experience as timeless as the music itself. An added bonus! Famed Russian composer Borodin's In the Steppes Of Central Asia and Polovtsian Dances (from Prince Igor) accompany images of the great Red Sand Desert and Bukhara's grand display of architecture.
