    Alice Sara Ott did a spectacular job IMO.

    I have a CD, bought in France many years ago, of Mussorgsky's complete piano works played by a lady named Sylvie Carbonel which I enjoy very much. Some of the other pieces are well worth getting to know as well.

    Richter's December 1952 live Moscow rendition is my go-to for this. Sound is not bad at all considering when it was recorded. Wonderful performance.

    Modern sound, Yefim Bronfman on Sony (recorded in 1991 if memory serves). Excellent version that really allows the music to speak for itself.

    Vintage sound, Sviatoslav Richter on Philips is worth hearing as it is beyond compare in many ways.
    The Richter version sound aside is a classic recording in every sense of the word.
