1.10 The music played at startup on the early RCA VideoDiscs from 1981sounds familiar. Where have I heard it before?

This music is from the Promenade of Modest Petrovich Mussorgsky's
"Pictures at an Exhibition." The electronic version heard on the
1981-released VideoDiscs is Isao Tomita's rendition of this work,
recorded in 1974. The Tomita rendition was once available in stereo LP,
quadradisc, and 8-Track (stereo and quadraphonic), and is still
available on an RCA Victor Dolby Surround CD, stock no. 60576-2-RG. The
Mussorgsky music was replaced on VideoDiscs released in 1982.
