Drigo and Pugni - piano reduction scores of ballets

Postby gomezdesilva » Mon Mar 02, 2009 11:23 am

Hi, everyone!
I am searching for the following rare piano reduction scores of ballets:
Cesare Pugni - Pas de quatre
Riccardo Drigo - La foret enchantee (The Enchanted Forest)
Riccardo Drigo - Le Talisman
Riccardo Drigo - La Perle (The Pearl)
Riccardo Drigo - Pas de trois for Bayer's ballet Die Puppenfee
Riccardo Drigo - Pas de deux from Harlequinade
Does anyone have some of these scores they could upload?
Thanks!

We already have the complete piano score for Harlequinade - whose actual title is Les Millions d'Arlequin. These are fairly rare and difficult to find, but more will be added as we come across them.

The Sibley Music Library (University of Rochester) has recently listed a whole pile of ballet music by Drigo and Pugni.

I don't know enough about the pieces, or the authors, to make an intelligent attempt at categorising and creating work pages and importing them here, so I will leave it to those who are more familiar with this music.

Thank you for the information, Aldona! The Sibley Music Library doesn't have the scores I am looking for, but it has some rare scores which could be imported here.

Hello -- I have all of these scores, with the exception of the 1889 "Le Talisman", which was unfortunately never published in piano reduction. "Le Talisman" is perhaps Drigo finest score...in my opinion he even exceeds Delibes. The full-length ballet was revived in Padua in 1997 in honor of the 150th anniversary of Drigo's birth, and I have been pestering a friend of mine with a talent for transcription to put down the entire ballet. I have posted extracts from the premiere on youtube -

My score for the 1887 "La forêt enchantée" is sadly not complete (about 8 or 9 pages are missing from the end). Fortunately, my score does contain some pieces that Drigo added for a revival of the ballet in 1889 that were never published (a freind of mine has transcribed them for piano, and I have included them in my score). A few pieces from "La forêt enchantée" were incorporated into the Bolshoi ballet's recent revival of the full-length "Le Corsaire", which I have also uploaded to youtube -

Mr. Lopez, Did you ever solve the problems you were having with scanning? I recall that you were trying to share some of your interesting collection with this site last year, but had some trouble in getting things to come out in a form that could be uploaded without too much difficulty. Jim Farrington, the librarian in charge of scanning at Eastman's Sibley Library, has much experience in scanning the type of items found in your collection. If you wish, send me a PM and I'll sned you his contact info.

Any word on Talisman? I wouldn't mind making a reduction of the Drigo-Pugni pas de deux if someone has full score.

I posted a piano arrangement of the female variation I made by ear for a class I'm accompanying. If anyone knows how to make the Arrangements and Transcriptions tab and put it under there, I'd appreciate it. Hope this is helpful to you too shound!

Thank you to whoever made the proper tab (and cleaned things up on the page!)

I am working on my transcription of the Harlequinade Pas de Deux and it's on musescore.com/pianolady

Once it's done and complete i will upload it to IMSLP.

Please let me know your comments on the transcription as i have no reference at all for the pas de deux.
