Roth conducts a new edition of the score that removes some of the amendments that Serge Koussevitzky made when he first conducted it, and also goes back to the manuscript of Mussorgsky’s piano original to correct some details - Ravel had to work from the “cleaned-up” edition that Rimsky-Korsakov published after Mussorgsky’s death. The result is like viewing a restored old master; every detail glows, exactly as Ravel would have imagined it.”
