Moussorgsky - Pictures At An Exhibition - Tomita ‎(LP, Album). Pictures At An Exhibition ‎(LP, Album). The most complex, deepest, grandioso electronic album ever. Nothing come closer technicalwise. Incredible taste and power, unparalelled character. HIGHEST recommendation!!! Avoid remasters! The early German is far the most precise and clean and informative sounding CD of all.

Pictures at an Exhibition is a live album by the English progressive rock band Emerson, Lake & Palmer, released in November 1971 on Island Records. It is a recording of the band's arrangement of Pictures at an Exhibition by Modest Mussorgsky, performed at Newcastle City Hall on 26 March 1971. Emerson wished to arrange the piece after seeing an orchestral performance of it several years before. He bought a copy of the score, and pitched the idea to Lake and Palmer, who agreed to adapt it.

PICTURES AT AN EXHIBITION 1975 (Mussorgsky) For this album (also in the top 3) TOMITA created some of the most unusual, high quality electronic sounds ever heard. Then he used these sounds very effectively in some amazing orchestrations. The listening is as enjoyable as it is bizarre, quite an accomplishment in itself. Rimsky-Korsakov: SCHEHERAZADE- excerpt of Part I. Bach-TOMITA: Sea Named Solaris- excerpt).

Tomita managed to come up with a version of the Pictures At An Exhibition which evokes the grandeur of the original. This is a good record for those who are familiar with the original genre and are willing to explore modern interpretations

He adds much of his own personality to the new arrangements so they are not straight technical knockoffs. Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition takes on new meanings under Tomita 's sensitive and sensible rendering. He is not re-inventing the wheel so all of the original drama and humor is there but the new hooks and riffs have moxy and their own senses of drama and humor. The ambient atmospheres and sci-fi textures give this version an outer space persona.
