Famous violinist Itzhal Perlman and Eugene Ormandy, long-standing conductor of the Philadelphia Orchestra recorded this fantastic Russian program live at the Academy of Music, Philadelphia in 1978 and 1979 in extraordinary sound quality.

Modest Mussorgsky's most famous piano composition Pictures at an Exhibition which is deemed to be one Ormandy's specialties is orchestrated in the acclaimed Ravel version. Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto, which is considered as one of the best known and technically most challenging works for violin, is performed by Itzhak Perlman - undeniably the the reigning virtuoso of the violin - who has been called "one of the greatest musical talents to emerge since World War II" according to violin expert Tully Potter, New Grove.
