“Järvi made something fresher, bolder and more exciting of this music than I have heard in years. Seldom have the catacombs echoed so sonorously, the ox-cart trundled so heavily of the unhatched chicks dances so wittily. All this, and Adolph Herseth’s peerless trumpet, too.” — Chicago Tribune

On this, the sixth recording of Modest Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, friend of the orchestra Nemme Järvi brings new life to this well-loved masterwork, coupled with Russian composer Alexander Scriabin’s lesser-performed Poem of Ecstasy.
