Editorial Reviews

This "dramatized biography" presents a condensed look at the life of the famed Russian composer Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky, interspersed with brief but powerful selections from his music. Richard Mayes proves an able narrator with perfect elocution, while Steve Hodson performs dramatic quotations - a somewhat unusual format that works better than it might. Though an older recording, the sound quality here is excellent, and those interested in Tchaikovsky's life will find this an accessible introduction to the great artist.

Publisher's Summary

"An artist should not be troubled by the indifference of his contemporaries. He should go on working and say all that he is predestined to say. He should know that posterity alone can deliver a true and just verdict." So said Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky, and posterity has delivered its verdict. His music is glorious, uplifting, soulful, umourous and wonderfully melodic. Thchaikovsky regarded usic as something to be savoured and shared, and he worked hard and long to that end. This programme reveals much of his troubled life and times and presents many extracts from his marvellous music.
