Moussorgsky gave us his famous Pictures at an Exhibition which I cherish ... and have presently been stumbling along with the old ox cart “Bydlo” ... but
outside of this marvel, and for me his plaintive “A Tear” ...
can you chaps recommend more of the same?

PS Must just let you mortals know that I have been watching morning swifts cavorting
in numbers against the backdrop of fluffy white clouds drifting over an azure blue sky ...
and wouldn’t want to swop my lot with the Sultan of Turkey.

It's in transcription, but the Tcherepin version of Night on Bald Mountain is quite fun.

As Horowitz remarked, Mussorgsky wasn't a pianist, so it's not really surprising that he didn't write much for the instrument.

Thanks for that MarkH ... I'm well into the first page of MM's Night on a Bald Mountain ... kicks off at a blistering Allegro feroce pace.
