My own arrangement of Swan Lake

Edited: February 23, 2019, 1:32 PM · Hi!

This is a piano arrangement, not a violin, but however, who couldn't like Swan Lake even on piano :D

Tell me your opinion of my arrangement :)

(don't forget to subscribe and like if you'd like to see more my piano playing! Next song would be Toccata & Fuga in d minor or Chopin's C# minor nocturne, for example...)

I have heard it many times. At times it sounds almost like Schumann.

On arrival they realise their misapprehension and settle in their seats, when he promptly falls asleep. At the end his wife says to him, "Do you realise how considerate these Russians are? They even go on tiptoe to avoid disturbing you".

There’s also a interesting and very virtuosic arrangement by Mikhail Pletnev of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker. Maria Andreeva, a fantastic violinist & pianist, has a few videos up on YouTube playing it.
