'I was not trying to re-create Mussorgsky's orchestral sound in this recording, but actually to create a contemporary sound. I wanted to create it without using any unusual instruments and to stay within the limits of the traditional symphony orchestra with a substantial expansion in woodwind and percussion. I tried to create a contemporary sound with unusual combinations and settings. From the very beginning, the first Promenade combines alto flute, cor anglais and violins divisi in eight parts, with martellato violas. In places the piccolo doubling another solo woodwind at the octave and a fifth above creates an organ-like mixture effect, with the bassoon in Il vecchio castello. The possibility of setting the harmonies within one group of woodwind, thanks to the employment of four instruments in each group, creates also a lot of unusually sounds. Some solo passages were assigned to instruments that would not be really expected in that rôle-a trumpet solo in Tuileries, and a combination of trombones, four flutes and vibraphone in Cum nortuis in lingua morta. There are a few things added to the score that were not in the piano version, such as horn glissandi in Gnomus and Bydlo, harp/vibraphone figurations in Gnomus, piano/celesta figurations in Il vecchio castello, flute figures in Samuel Goldberg und Schmuyle and La cabane sur des pattes de poule. At the end a body of 104 musicians creates quite a spectacular Great Gate of Kiev. The song cycles introduce a different problem-to replace the vocal line in a way to make it an organic part of the orchestration. Thanks to rather recitativo like vocal lines this was possible by dividing it almost always between several solo instruments. Wherever Mussorgsky has a nice long melody, however, I try to remain within a single colour to support it. There is a lovely violin solo in Serenade and cor anglais in Trepak.' Peter Breiner
