Modest Petrovich Mussorgsky - ll

Modest Petrovich Mussorgsky (Russian: Модест Петрович Мусоргский[a], tr. Modést Petróvich Músorgskiy[b], IPA: [mɐˈdɛst pʲɪˈtrovʲɪtɕ ˈmusərkskʲɪj] (About this soundlisten); 21 March [O.S. 9 March] 1839 – 28 March [O.S. 16 March] 1881) was a Russian composer, one of the group known as "The Five". He was an innovator of Russian music in the Romantic period.
He strove to achieve a uniquely Russian musical identity, often in
deliberate defiance of the established conventions of Western music.

Many of his works were inspired by Russian history, Russian folklore, and other national themes. Such works include the opera Boris Godunov, the orchestral tone poem Night on Bald Mountain and the piano suite Pictures at an Exhibition.

For many years, Mussorgsky's works were mainly known in versions
revised or completed by other composers. Many of his most important
compositions have posthumously come into their own in their original
forms, and some of the original scores are now also available.
