Modest Mussorgsky's brilliantly evocative composition Pictures at an Exhibition is combined with travelogue footage of Russia for this special DVD which satisfies both the eyes and the ears. As Mussorgsky's masterpiece is performed on the soundtrack, viewers are taken for a grand tour of the architecture of St. Petersburg, the underground caverns of Odessa, the lights of Moscow at night, and the pastoral beauty of the Russian countryside. In addition, two beloved compositions by Alexander Borodin are featured as a bonus: In the Steppes of Central Asia and Polovtsian Dances. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
