Modest Mussorgsky


Included in Ms. Bindman’s debut recording, Three Works by Modeste Mussorgsky, are his famous masterpiece “Pictures at an Exhibition,” Ms. Bindman’s piano transcription of his orchestral tone poem “A Night on Bald Mountain” and the composer’s own piano arrangement of a lesser-known orchestral sketch, “Intermezzo in Classical Style.” This recording reflects Ms. Bindman’s passion for Mussorgsky’s music as well as her interest in the piano’s capability to assume the guise of a full symphony orchestra, as all three pieces exist in both instrumentations. The artist’s own piano rendition of “A Night on Bald Mountain” is a faithful version of the original. It is published by Carl Fischer, Inc.
