Emerson, Lake & Palmer live: Pictures at an Exhibition 1970


This is Emerson, Lake and Palmer's full performance of their adaptation of Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition. The performance was filmed at the Lyceum Theatre in London in December 1970, but not released until 2001. The piece is performed as good as on the live album Pictures at an Exhibition, released the year after (1971) and re-released in 2001 as a remastered edition including both live and studio versions. Modest Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition is a suite in ten movements (plus a recurring, varied Promenade) composed for piano by the Russian composer in 1874. This suite is Mussorgsky's most famous piano composition, which has become further known through various orchestrations and arrangements produced by other musicians and composers, with Maurice Ravel's arrangement being the most recorded and performed.
