Description
"Poznansky (author of several Tchaikovsky books) and Langston (British Tchaikovsky scholar) collaborated on this massive two volume set, intended to provide extensive coverage in English, long overdue, of everything relating to Tchaikovsky. The principal part of volume 1 is the thematic catalog of works in 23 categorie" -- e.g., operas, ballets, incidental music, symphonies, suites, orchestral music, concertos, songs and duets, chamber music, piano music, notebooks, diaries. Each section includes some of the score, instrumentation, dates and locations of performances, manuscript sources, publication, dedication, and related works. Additional features include a life chronology; facsimiles of score covers, music, articles, and diary entries; a catalog of 169 photographs in chronological order; and Tchaikovsky's autobiography, generously annotated for clarity. The work is enhanced by three abbreviation lists, an opus number list, a chronology of compositions, and two indexes (titles with variants and general). Intended for bibliographers, librarians, music critics, and program annotators as well as musicians and musicologists, this work is a bargain for quality of content, usability, and craftsmanship.
