After hearing so many classical warhorses played badly so many times, reviewer Tom Manoff has found a recording that makes Mussorgsky's Pictures of an Exhibition come alive again. It features pianist Evgeny Kissin, and Manoff says Kissin's light, playful touches and delicate musical strokes have resurrected this piece of music for him. (3:30) The CD is on RCA Victor, copyright 2002.
