Catalogue Number: 09L069
Label: Music & Arts
Description: Kirkor was a transcriber, arranger and editor (he restored and published the original version of Mussorgsky's Night on the Bare Mountain) and his transcription of Rachmaninov's tone poem (1957) is as moody, atmospheric and hypnotically gripping as the original version. Carlo Grante (piano).
