Saint-Saëns/Guiraud - Danse Macabre (4 hands) - 06/27/12 01:12 PM

Hi to everyone! smile

It's time to show you the next piece that I've played. It's the "Danse Macabre" from Camille Saint-Saëns. What I've played is a transcription for four handsp iano. The transcription is made by Guiraud. I've played it with my friend Eliecer Soriano.

This piece is based on a symphonic poem. In the beginning, this piece was composed for the orchestra and it was very critizied by the audience, but in the long run this piece became a very famouse piece from which there have been different transcriptions.

Between them, for we the pianists, it's necessary to emphasize in Liszt's transcription (very difficult) and Horowitz's transcription (devilishly difficult)

Well, without delay, here you have the "Danse Macabre" laugh
