This is a very good biography dealing with Tchaikovsky's life and music and comes with the added bonus of 2 Cd's of some of his most famous works.
I really enjoyed the book and would recommend it to anyone who is interested in this great man and his life.

This is an excellent book to introduce people to Tchaikovsky. It is clearly written and quite comprehensive. What is more, it comes with two CDs of Tchaikovsky's music. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, not to mention the music, which included some lesser-known works as well as more famous pieces. A bargain!

Tchaikovsky is one of the most popular composers who ever lived. He is also one of the most misunderstood, as both man and musician, and looks destined to remain among the most controversial. Widely misrepresented as an emotional voluptuary and typecast as a ‘crazy Russian genius’, he was, in fact, a highly disciplined and masterly craftsman of pronounced classical leanings, and a man whose volatile and hypersensitive temperament was as much his friend as his enemy. His life was lived at the extremes, and fuelled by passions of almost every kind. This much is evident in his music, which plays a vital part in this absorbing portrait, as do the words of the composer and his contemporaries. Here we meet the composer in the context of his times. We also meet a man of compelling humanity, sensibility and humour.

Bought this for my dad who is a huge fan. He absolutely loved it, said it was written really well and the quality of the cd was excellent. He was also delighted that CD included a piece of music (I can't remember what it was called) that he had been trying to find on CD. Had it sent straight to my dad's address.

This book gives an insight into Tchaikovsky which is both enjoyable and rewarding. The cd is great and the quality up to Naxos high standard excellent well recommended.
