Mussorgsky - Dwarf and old castle (gold print cover)

Modest Petrovich Mussorgsky (Russian: Модест Петрович Мусоргский[note 1], tr. Modést Petróvich Músorgskiy, IPA: [mɐˈdɛst pʲɪˈtrovʲɪtɕ ˈmusərkskʲɪj]; 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.
