    Mussorgsky--Khovanshchina Opera

    Any folks here have this opera? What set do you have? How do you like it?

    I have Tchakarov and Gergiev sets. Both follow the Shostakovich orchestration. Shostakovich tried to orchestrate close to what Mussorgsky would have done had he finished the opera before the bottle finished him. The other orchestration, of course, is Rimsky-Korsakov, who tended to go above and beyond Mussorgsky.
