A brilliant example of Moussorgsky's innovative techniques, this dramatic work was completed and orchestrated by Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov after Moussorgsky's death. Full of intense effects, the piece has long been a staple of the orchestral repertoire, particularly after its memorable accompaniment to the Witches' Sabbath sequence of Disney's Fantasia.

    "In my high school recently, we played this for our symphonic band concert and it sounded great. I play the flute and my section sounded great. The flute is heard throughout the melody in this piece from beginning to end (of course the flute is the best). The aggressive and...

    frightening melody and tempo in the beginning is very distinguished from the calm, peaceful, and innocent conclusion played by the woodwinds. "Night On Bald Mountain" is a challenging piece for many, and it still makes you sit at the edge of your seat when listening to it. I would like to thank Mussorgsky for creating such a grand composition.(FLUTES ARE THE BEST!!!!!!!!) "
