    Default Anyone identify the music that sounds like this?

    Listening to Mussorgsky/Stokowski Boris Godunov Symphonic Synthesis Outside the Noyodievichiy Monastery https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nV3Y2mumHac starting at 3'57" and thought that it sounded just like another orchestral piece that I know but can't find - anyone recognise it?
    Thanks for any help

    Theatre, a forum for public debate, an arena for cathartic spectacle and somewhere for vain bitchy people to show off in front of big crowds!

    You might be able to search You Tube for Boris Godunov Symphonic Synthesis and get one up that does work for you. I have the Boris Godunov Symphonic Synthesis. It is very good, but may as well listen to the opera. I can't figure what else sounds like it though.
    "All of Italian opera can be heard in [Bellini's] "Ah! non creda [mirarti]."
    --Renata Scotto in "Scotto, More Than a DIva."

    Hmm - in style the start reminds a little of the opening of Rimsky-Korsakov's 'Russian Easter Overture', but there is also a theme in there that reminds me very much of the ''Volga Boatmen song'. However, the section you refer to from 3.57 sounds to me rather like Sibelius, if that helps in any way.
    There may come a time when Youtube won't let us do this...
