This clearly chronicles the conductors personal and professional life with recordings of his works during each phase. A much more enjoyable experience than I ever anticipated. Worth listening again and sharing. I will look for other composers done in this manner. A very complete experience and perfect for this format.
What made the experience of listening to The Life and Works of Tchaikovsky the most enjoyable?
Musical examples were included in the audio, which made it very engaging and helped me understand the context of Tchaikovsky's compositions.
What other book might you compare The Life and Works of Tchaikovsky to and why?
As a Tchaikovsky biography, this one is rather short. Others are much longer and go more in depth, especially into musical analysis. This one is succinct enough for the average reader and sufficiently whets the appetite of someone wishing to study further.
What about the narrators’s performance did you like?
The British gentleman who narrated did so clearly and as though he was talking to a friend, not reading a biography.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes. In fact, it's so short I listened to it in just a few sittings.
