TCHAIKOVSKY. ROSE ADAGIO FROM SLEEPING BEAUTY

“Rose Adagio from the ballet Sleeping beauty is one of the most uplifting, powerfully beautiful, enlightening, regal and inspiring moments in the ballet literature…how disappointed I was one day to find that it wasn't included in the famous Sleeping Beauty suite written for piano by Mikhail Pletnev! And how happy I am that this circumstance allowed me to have my own version,

which I miraculously always find energy to play at the end of my solo and orchestral performances. Just because it is such a gorgeous music, and also because it is in one of my favorite keys - E flat major.”
