This CD contains Mussorgsky's Pictures in both the original version for solo piano and Ravel's orchestration. The orchestral performance, though not inspired, is pretty decent. The piano performance, unfortunately, is a disappointment. Sevidov rushes some passages, drags others, and generally seems unsure of his rhythm. For instance, he seems to have added a couple of beats at the end of the "Chicks in Their Shells" (or is this just faulty editing?). If you want good performances of both versions, you might have to buy two different CD's.
