Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition: Promenade – Bydlo (12:43)
Jorge Federico Osorio, piano
Internationally admired concert pianist Jorge Federico Osorio, praised by The New York Times for “the sweep and freshness of his readings,” offers a riveting and richly pictorial recital on his first-ever recording of Russian masterworks. Mussorgsky’s original piano setting of his popular Pictures at an Exhibition anchors an absorbing program that includes Prokofiev’s Sixth Sonata and Romeo and Juliet Before Parting, plus Shostakovich’s Prelude and Fugue No 24.
