チャイコフスキー バレエ『眠れる森の美女』(全曲) ピアノ独奏用



Tchaikovsky Ballet Sleeping Beauty,
for solo pianos (2 CDs)

The unique characteristic of Ziloti’s arrangements is that he achieves the desire and innovation as a pianist to make pieces easier to play and therefore resound effectively rather than reflecting his own personality in his works. This is the same for Sleeping Beauty, recorded on this CD. From the story that Ziloti arranged the piano part before the first ballet performance at Tchaikovsky’s request, we can imagine that he may have thought about using this arrangement for ballet practice and that he intended to try to capture all the sounds of the original piece when arranging it.

However, Ziloti was perfected as a virtuoso pianist by Liszt and Nikolai Rubinstein therefore, scores arranged by him demands the pianist: a broad, jumping action, high speed scales with chords in thirds, and instantaneous chords that are difficult to play with one hand and although these are simple music, they demand advanced technical skills. This makes us think that he really was a virtuoso to the end and that he just disliked the complexity of the three-hand effect.
