Description

The Alexander Siloti Collection - Advanced piano solos by Richard Strauss, Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Frederic Chopin, Christopf Willibald Von Gluck, Johann Sebastian Bach, Franz Liszt, Anatoli Lyadov, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Nikolai Rimsky Korsakov, Camille Saint-Saens, and Alexander Scriabin transcribed by Alexander Siloti (1863 - 1945). - One of the least known of the great Russian pianists of the late 19th and early 20th Centuries, Alexander Siloti (1863-1945) was one of the most influential and progressive. As a concert promoter, he introduced the music of dozens of composers to the Russian public in the famous Siloti Concerts of 1903-1917, including Albeniz, Debussy, de Falla, Delius, Elgar, Enesco, Mahler and Schoenberg. A student of Liszt (and one of the teachers of Rachmaninoff), Siloti is a central figure in the development of the great age of the piano virtuoso. As with many of his colleagues, transcribing and arranging existing music for the piano was a major part of Siloti’s activity, and since he made no recordings, his published transcriptions are one of the few existing keys we have to his musical taste and philosophy. In an extended biographical essay, Dr. Charles Barber explores this issue and writes cogently about the style and influence of this remarkable man. The Alexander Siloti Collection is dominated by Siloti’s remarkable transcriptions and arrangements of the music of J.S. Bach, notable particularly for their pianistic character and faithfulness to the unique “genetic code of Bach’s design.” Some of the Bach works included are: Prelude in B Minor, BWV855a, Gigue from Suite in Bb Major, Chaconne in D Minor, the Organ Preludes in E Minor and G Minor and the celebrated Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, BWV 565. Music by Gluck, Mozart and Chopin is also contained in this generous compilation of pianistic wizardry. This addition to The Master’s Collection is likely to be one of the most talked about piano folios of the year. - bolded title matches Jane's Piano Tutorial Video - Contents: The Life by Siloti * Prelude by Johann Sebastian Bach * Adagio by Johann Sebastian Bach * Air by Johann Sebastian Bach * Chaconne by Johann Sebastian Bach * Gigue by Johann Sebastian Bach * Andante by Johann Sebastian Bach * Fantasia by Johann Sebastian Bach * Organ Prelude by Johann Sebastian Bach * Paraphrase by Johann Sebastian Bach * Siciliano by Johann Sebastian Bach * Toccata and Fugue by Johann Sebastian Bach * Melody by Christoph Willibald Von Gluck * Variations by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart * Etude no. 25 by Frederic Chopin * Scherzo in Bb Minor by Frederic Chopin * Au bord d'une source by Franz Liszt * Au lac de Wallenstadt by Franz Liszt * Consolation No. 3 by Franz Liszt * Concert Etude in Db Major by Franz Liszt * Sposalizio by Franz Liszt * Il Penseroso by Franz Liszt * Sursum Corda by Franz Liszt * Le Cygne by Camille Saint Saens * Humoresque by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky * Theme original et variations by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky * A Song of India by Nikolay Andreyevich Rimsky Korsakov * Four Russian Folk Songs ( Legend of the Birds by Liadov; I Danced with a Mosquito by Liadov; Cradle Song by Liadov; Dance by Liadov) * Twelve Themes from Famous Waltzes by Strauss * Etude in C# Minor by Alexander Scriabin * Poeme by Alexander Scriabin * Romanze by Sergei Rachmaninoff * Prelude in G# Minor by Sergei Rachmaninoff --- (288 pages, smythe sewn binding). - 9.0" X 12.0" - (Carl Fischer Pub.) ----- music book ----- PL112
