Promenade with Mussorgsky Alex Rostotsky - Pictures at an exhibition or promenade with Mussorgsky

2006 © Alex Rostotsky, JBT

 

A new project by Alex Rostotsky is a kind of a musical gift not only for classical music-lovers but also for those who admire jazz improvisation. One of the best Russian jazz musicians, Alex Rostotsky has released a new album, "Pictures at an Exhibition", where the famous Mussorgsky's themes are performed by a jazz trio. A famous Russian composer Alexander Rozenblatt has written a concert fantasia for the grand-piano, electric bass, percussion and symphonic orchestra especially for the album. Having joined jazz and symphonical language and left a lot of Mussorgsky'e text untouched, Rostotsky is opening a new modern world of fusion and moving apart traditional frames of perception of classical music.
