Lead Me from Tortured Dreams: Pictures at an Exhibition

Pictures at an Exhibition is one of the very few classical pieces to which I ever listen.   There are ten movements in the piece, each representing a different painting at an art gallery, and the imagery really comes through — from lumbering ox carts to bustling markets to the majestic Gates at Kiev.   But, it was the dreamy, repetitive Promenade which played over and over in my 7th grade head.
