Overview

The supreme melodic master of nineteenth-century Russian music, Peter Ilyitch Tchailcovsky employed his full powers of composition in his final symphonies. These transcriptions allow intermediate and advanced pianists to re-create the texture and grandeur of the composer's last three symphonic works: the Fourth Symphony in F Minor, Op. 36; the Fifth Symphony in E Minor, Op. 64; and the profoundly moving work that is widely considered Tchaikovsky's greatest symphony, the Sixth Symphony in B Minor ("Pathetique"), Op. 74.

These works embody the sumptuous tone, melodic wizardry, and voluptuous intensity that characterize Tchaikovsky's later compositions. This handsome and inexpensive new edition offers excellent reproductions of these popular works from authoritative sources.
