Fifth part of English version of “Pictures at an exhibition”. “Bydlo”

Where Modest Petrovich gives metaphisical picutere of humanity carrying the burden of life. Rising above personal experience and narrow artistic look he shows us in this music the “whole Mother Russia”, somber, heavy, drunk and dark, doomed to carry the hard and cruel path of its historic destiny. But Mussorgsky rises even higher than that “national path”. As true genius he reaches the all embracing level of the metaphysics of entire humanity in this music.
