    Can’t beat a good bit of Mussorgsky! Pictures is one of the few suite of pieces which works in any medium – orchestral, piano or even (as I grew up with, listening to Tomita) synthesizers. He had the golden touch even if the composer himself was a drunken liability!

      Agreed! I still hear one or two excerpts from the Emerson Lake And Palmer version from time to time, for “nostalgic” reasons.
