Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Composer and author Daniel Felsenfeld takes the reader on a tour of some of the "Little Russian's" most beloved works, including The Nutcracker, Swan Lake, 1812 Overture, Romeo and Juliet, Symphonies Nos. 4 and 6, the Serenade for Strings, and his Violin Concerto. The book is a series of blow-by-blow listening sections matched to the music on two accompanying CDs, guiding the reader through these magical compositions, illuminating their edges and fine points.

Book News Annotation:

Felsenfeld presents a guide to the music of Tchaikovsky for classical music lovers, along with two CDs that include the music discussed in the text: The Nutcracker, Romeo and Juliet Overture, Symphonies No. 4 and 6, the 1812 Overture, Serenade for Strings in C Major, and the Concerto for Violin. Section-by-section descriptions (with time markings to correlate to the CDs) are accompanied by some historical and biographical information on each piece. There is no index. Felsenfeld, a critic and composer, is the author of other listener's guides in the series.
