Mussorgsky Masterpiece
John L. Kenny | Plymouth Meeting,Pa. | 12/21/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This 1937 recording was the first made by Eugene Ormandy
with the Philadelphia Orchestra. Ormandy's reading of the
Pathetique Symphony is a fine one played with skill,passion
and driving tempos. It doesn't quite have the power of his later
recording with Columbia/Sony . The 1937 version seems to be
played at a brisker pace.
This CD includes Lucien Cailliet's arrangement(not Ravel's)
of Pictures at an Exhibition. Cailliet had a long career with
the Phila. Orchestra's woodwinds section and assisted Stokowski with his famous transcriptions.Cailliet uses woodwinds in the
opening of the first Promenade, in contrast to Ravel's solo
trumpet.I love this recording, despite being recorded in 1937
and when I play "Pictures" in my brain,this is the version
I'm listening to.Passion,rhythm,great solo playing,and
musicality are all there.
