"Mussorgsky composed this music in June 1874. One of Mussorgsky's few unalienated friends was the St. Petersburg artist, architect and stage designer Viktor Hartmann (1834-1873), who lived even fewer years than the composer's 42. Vladimir Stasov, librarian and critic, arranged a memorial retrospective of some 400 Hartmann drawings and watercolors. Deeply moved, Mussorgsky wrote a piano suite, one of the few works he actually completed, apart from a trove of songs. Rimsky-Korsakov edited it for publication in 1886, albeit less radically than his gutted versions of Boris Godunov, Khovanshchina, and A Night on Bare Mountain. By 1891, one Mikhail Tushmalov had already orchestrated seven of the ten Pictures. In the century since, there have been more than a dozen other versions, but none that challenge the finesse, subtlety, and cumulative impact of Maurice Ravel's (1875-1937), made for Sergey Koussevitzky, who led not only the world and American premieres (the latter with his Boston Symphony in 1926), but the first recording in 1930." - AMG.
