Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky 1840 -- 1893) was a Russian composer whose works included symphonies, concertos, operas, ballets, chamber music, and a choral setting of the Russian Orthodox Divine Liturgy. Some of these are among the most popular theatrical music in the classical repertoire. He was the first Russian composer whose music made a lasting impression internationally, which he bolstered with appearances as a guest conductor later in his career in Europe and the United States. One of these appearances was at the inaugural concert of Carnegie Hall in New York City in 1891. Tchaikovsky was honored in 1884 by Emperor Alexander III, and awarded a lifetime pension in the late 1880s.

Although musically precocious, Tchaikovsky was educated for a career as a civil servant. There was scant opportunity for a musical career in Russia at that time, and no system of public music education. When an opportunity for such an education arose, he entered the nascent Saint Petersburg Conservatory, from which he graduated in 1865. The formal Western-oriented teaching he received there set him apart from composers of the contemporary nationalist movement embodied by the Russian composers of The Five, with whom his professional relationship was mixed. Tchaikovsky's training set him on a path to reconcile what he had learned with the native musical practices to which he had been exposed from childhood. From this reconciliation, he forged a personal but unmistakably Russian style—a task that did not prove easy. The principles that governed melody, harmony and other fundamentals of Russian music ran completely counter to those that governed Western European music; this seemed to defeat the potential for using Russian music in large-scale Western composition or from forming a composite style, and it caused personal antipathies that dented Tchaikovsky's self-confidence. Russian culture exhibited a split personality, with its native and adopted elements having drifted apart increasingly since the time of Peter the Great, and this resulted in uncertainty among the intelligentsia of the country's national identity.

Tchaikovsky's Album for the Young (Opus 39) is a collection of 24 short songs that vary in meter, tempo, style, and harmonic structure.Inspired by Robert Schumann's children's works like Kinderszenen and Album fur die Jugend, Tchaikovsky, dissatisfied with the quality of children's music and lack thereof, composed these piano works in 1878, hoping to improve piano literature for children. These pieces are very much adult-like. Tchaikovsky masterfully demonstrates an adult understanding of childhood adolescence and innocence. Though these scores were dedicated to his seven year old nephew, Vladimir Davidoff, these pieces are certainly not for beginners.

Although these pieces were originally written for Piano, I created this arrangement of The Sorcerer (Баба-Яга) for String Quintet (3 Violins, Viola & Cello).
