"Four Stars. Utterly different in feel and texture to Ravel’s celebrated orchestration, Breiner demonstrates a special empathy with Mussorgsky’s startling world of Romantic primitivism."
- BBC Music Magazine

"... a well filled disc ... the two suites are a very substantial bonus ... playing standards are exemplary throughout. The orchestra clearly enjoyed playing for Breiner and the recording is bright and punchy. Overall this is a worthy addition to the Mussorgsky discography."
- MusicWeb International

Peter Breiner both conducts and orchestrates this exciting performance of Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra. These piano pieces have been orchestrated by numerous composers, with the Maurice Ravel version being the best known.  Of his new orchestration featured here, Breiner explains: "I was not trying to recreate Mussorgsky's orchestral sound, but actually to create a contemporary sound. I wanted to create it without using a lot of unusual sounds and to stay within the limits of the traditional symphony orchestra with a substantial expansion in the woodwind and percussion sections."

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
