Publisher's Summary:
This is a "A Choice Outstanding Academic Title 2003". Here is a scholarly resource of inestimable worth. It is a comprehensive guide to all known Tchaikovsky resource materials - every composition, finished or unfinished; all the writings, every piece of correspondence, all the diaries, every interview; all the photographs (with thumbnail images); and everything written about Tchaikovsky. This is a tremendous bibliographical undertaking and will raise the bar for Tchaikovsky scholarship overnight.In addition to the basic bibliographical data, the catalogue of works gives information on the circumstances surrounding the composition of the work and its earliest performances, arrangements for others instruments, where the manuscripts are (and any peculiarities that they exhibit), publication history, and any related works (for example, other works in which Tchaikovsky used the same melodic material). "The Tchaikovsky Handbook" will be indispensable for anyone doing research on the composer or any of his works, anyone writing notes for concert programs, every music library.
