This unique and very generous recoupling of two great performances directed by the legendary British conductor Sir Eugene Goossens (1893-1962) brings together Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition and Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade played by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and London Symphony Orchestra in superb stereo EMI & Everest sound. These are both long sought-after recordings which have not been available for many years, and the result is an exceptionally well-filled CD. A true collector's item.
