Do you guys remember Leonardi Slatkin's 1st composite suite for "Pictures at an Exhibition"?
He had been performing it round the world with many orchestras until 2003, but he never recorded it commercially.
Finally we get to see his performance at the BBC Proms 1991 with the Philharmonia Orchestra!

http://www.musicweb-international.com/c ... 619542.htm
At a Promenade Concert on Monday, August 19th 1991 we heard Leonard Slatkin's brilliant first compilation from nine different orchestrations of Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition, a remarkably successful initiative, reminding us, as it did, of how many arrangements there have been of this evocative score. Then he went for extracts from Lawrence Leonard’s version for piano and orchestra, from Vladimir Ashkenazy, Lucien Cailliet, Sergey Gorchakov, Leonidas Leonardi, Sir Henry Wood, Mikhail Tushmalov, Leopold Stokowski and Maurice Ravel.
It was the indefatigable Edward Johnson, champion of Leopold Stokowski, we had to thank for getting Slatkin interested and finding some of the scores. Now Slatkin has done it again with a new – in many ways more way-out – compilation including versions by Ellison, Gorchakov, Walter Goehr, Naoumoff, Geert van Keulen, Ashkenazy, Simpson, Cailliet, Wood, Lawrence Leonard, Leo Funtek, Boyd, Ravel and the Australian composer/arranger Douglas Gamley.

Slatkin’s first compilation, although he played it round the world, has never been commercially released, which makes it all the more pleasing to welcome his second version on this CD from the 2004 Proms at the Royal Albert Hall.
.........
Leonard Slatkin's 1st composite suite was :
1. Promenade (Lawrence Leonard)
2. Gnomus (Vladimir Ashkenazy)
3. Promenade II(Lucien Cailliet)
4. The Old Castle (Sergei Gorchakov)
5. Promenade III (Leonidas Leonardi)
6. Tuileries (Leonidas Leonardi)
7. Bydlo (Sir Henry Wood)
8. Promenade IV (Lucien Cailliet)
9. Ballet of the unhatched chicks (Lucien Cailliet)
10. 2 Polish-Jews, One Rich, the other Poor (Sergei Gorchakov)
11.Promenade V (Lucien Cailliet)
12.Limoges ; the Market (Mikhail Tushmalov)
13.Catacombs (Leopold Stokowski)
14.Cum Mortuis in Lingua Mortua (Sir Henry Wood)
15.Baba Yaga (Maurice Ravel)
16.Great Gate of Kiev (Maurice Ravel)
*encore* --> Great Gate of Kiev (Sir Henry Wood)

Youtube member "ltwvw" has uploaded the 1st composite suite (many thanks to him! :D )

Interesting. Nice to see Lawrence Leonard after all these years - he was a friend of a late friend and we chatted over dinner one evening. I didn't know that his version was written for Katharina Wolpe, who I also knew vaguely twenty-odd years ago - fabulous house in Hampstead - great lady.
