    I've always loved this work. I had to learn it in music appreciation/theory portions of my piano lessons. I was blown away when I discovered as a young teen ELP's treatment of the work. Just watched the ELP 40th Anniversary Concert and they were still brilliant playing this live! Rest In Peace Greg Lake and Keith Emerson. Heaven's got one hell of a band!

    The best melody is that of the (The hut on the hen's legs), starting at min 23 something and continues for about 3 min more.

    The great Russian music has a special taste that we do not find the Western music, something special, very special.

    The best work of Modest, sounds like a "EP" full of singles in his time.

    You can really hear the influence this had over Jeremy Soule during his writing over the oblivion soundtrack.

    This is good stuff. I want to thank the person who got me hooked onto classical music, many years ago.
    Before I was listening this version of Pictures at an Exhibition, I used to love, and still do, Emerson Lake & Palmers version of Pictures at an Exhibition. If you've not listen to ELP's version, then please do listen to it, when you have some down time.

    Logged in specifically to compliment you on uploading one of the best pieces of classical music on YouTube. Mussorgsky + Ravel + Solti + CSO make for a poetic experience. Starts with an invitational stroll, and ends tremendously. The music of the hen's legs is bewitched like its inspiration Baba Yaga. Lots of great movements. Epic!

    Anyone by any chance could tell me who the guy is around 22: 55 ? He looks just like me…. with a slightly longer beard.

    Solti does a wonderful work of conducting this great piece of music by Mussorgsky!

    This is one of my favourite musical compositions ever! Not only because of the intellectual masterpiece but because of the story behind it! Absolutely beautiful.
