Firma Melodiya presents Mussorgsky’s piano cycle Pictures at an Exhibition performed by Maria Yudina. “She was a pianist of genius. Not “outstanding”, not “talented”, just genius. However, she could hardly be called “a pianist”, Wrote Heinrich Neuhaus about Yudina.

“She was much more than just a musician” many who knew her personally would say.

A person who combined music, poetry and philosophy, she did not fit ant frames of “styles” and directions.

Her rendition of Mussorgsky’s famous cycle Pictures at an Exhibition (better known today as Ravel’s orchestral version) is a real treat for music lovers. The album also features the composer’s piano pieces written shortly before his decease.
