Mussorgsky's Pictures at an exhibition was composed for piano in 1874. However, the music was not played and the score was not published for long time. After his death, the work was published by Rimsky-Korsakov in 1886. In this page, the arrangements for instrument are listed.
How to Read List
- The record label and number reflect that of the pressing of the performance in the collection of the compiler.
- I have sought to acquire the original pressings of the performance in question in most cases (in some cases, where the original recording was on the 78rpm format, I also own an LP or CD pressing of that performance).
- The format column indicates, LP = long playing record; CD = compact disk; 78 = 78rpm shellac recording; CT = cassette. Many performances, originally issued in an older format, have subsequently been reissued on LP or CD, or both.
- If it is not completed, the movements are numbered according to the following code:
|1.||Promenade I||9.||Ballet of Unhatched Chicks|
|2.||Gnomus||10.||Samuel Goldenberg and Schmuyle|
|3.||Promenade II||11.||Promenade V|
|4.||The Old Castle||12.||The Market Place at Limoges|
|6.||Tuileries: Children Quarreling at Play||14.||Lingua Morgua|
|7.||Bydlo||15.||Hut on Fowl’s Legs (Baba-Yaga)|
|8.||Promenade IV||16.||The Great Gate of Kiev|
- The recording date is given as precisely (in the format of year-month-day) as is ascertainable from the accompanying notes on the record.
List is formed in order to the conductors name.
