Peter Ilyitch Tchaikovsky Album for the Young Op. 39
About Peter Ilyitch Tchaikovsky's Album for the Young
The picturesque little pieces of this collection were all composed during April and May 1878, with the specific aim of enriching children’s musical literature. They are all very short, all but two less than a minute in performance. Styles are varied, with many of the pieces inspired by folk music from Russia, Poland, Italy, Germany and France.
