    This affordable performance edition contains a selection of the easiest piano pieces and dances by Peter Tchaikovsky, whose large and often challenging body of music for piano contains a number of favorite character pieces that are ingratiatingly easy to play. Besides the most beautiful pieces from the Children's Album (Op. 39) and poetic impressions from his cycle The Seasons (Op. 37), our selection contains many surprises, inviting readers to make further discoveries.

    Examples include Tchaikovsky's piano arrangements of Russian folk songs, reproduced in their original piano-duet versions as well as versions for solo piano, which reveal him to be a master of the miniature. A few bars suffice to transport players and listeners alike into the magical and kaleidoscopic world of Russian folk music.
