HOROWITZ TRANSCRIPTION of MUSSORGSKY Pictures at an Exhibition (1947) 4/4
CRAZY PIANO TRANSCRIPTION! GREAT GATE OF KIEV! For sure, many know Ravel’s orchestration of Mussgorsky’s ‘Pictures at an Exhibition’, but few will be able to imagine hearing the orchestral version again after listening to Horowitz take command of this piece.Vladimir Horowitz applied a similar outlook to his own adaptation that was clearly attuned to project his fabulous technical wizardry. In his legendary hands, the culmination at the great gate of Kiev ends in a rolling chords, glittery descant accents and tremelos, all managing to suggest a full range of orchestral effects through the unadulterated sound and resources of the keyboard.
