(Editions, Transcriptions and Arrangements for Piano Solo)
Alexander Siloti - Carl Fischer LLC

If all that could be said about Alexander Siloti (1863-1945) was that he was a prize student of Liszt and teacher of Rachmaninoff, that would be enough to stake a claim for him in music history. But in fact, Siloti was, perhaps, as gifted a pianist as Russia has ever produced. Siloti's work as arranger, transcriber, and editor seemed to have been inspired by his years with Liszt. Each of Siloti's transcriptions is wholly pianistic. With astounding ingenuity Siloti revoices chords, redistributes pedal figures, recasts melodic lines, provides exact fingerings which pianists ignore at their peril, offers unusual double-fingerings and "third-hand" mid-keyboard thumb lines so as to "re-imagine" counter melodies, and in all of this honors the grand nineteenth-century tradition of broad gesture and heightened effect.  This volume includes transcriptions of the works of J. S. Bach; Gluck; Mozart; Chopin; Liszt; Saint-Saens; Tchaikovsky; Rimsky-Korsakov; Liadov; Johann Strauss, Jr.; Scriabin and Rachmaninoff.
