Swan Lake--cygnets in 1957 Plisetskaya film?
Posted 28 October 2009 - 08:15 AM
Also, can someone explain why the music for the "Black Swan Pas de Deux" is often not found on full length recordings of the ballet? I did have some luck a few years ago getting a recording that had the music in it's standard place, but it took some searching. I know this topic has been discussed in the past, but I would appreciate it being revisited. Thank-you.

You need to find a recording of the Petipa/Ivanov version of the ballet, the 1895 'text,' to get what is nowadays traditionally known as the Black Swan PdD.
i don't t know that anyone has studied the planning for the film of SWAN LAKE w/ Plisetskaya but one might assume that this being the BOLSHOI ballet, which is widely translated into English as signifying the BIG ballet, that the producers aimed to make things bigger, and thus up-scaled the cynettes pas de quatre to a pas de six, and then in the process reworked the traditional choreography as they preferred.
more adept BT members should be able to direct you to previous threads about recordings of the music you seek.

Edited: rg...we were probably writing at the same time. My apologies for pointing again at what you had previously explained.
