Tchaikovsky Discovers America - CD


These Classical Kids CD’s were a fabulous part of growing up in the Bjorkman house. Even now, whenever they hear a piece that they heard years ago on a Classical Kids album, they can tell you the composer because the richness of the story attributed to each is so intertwined with the music.

The great composer Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky arrives in New York for the grand opening of Carnegie Hall. It's all aboard for fun as two children join the composer on a musical journey to Niagara Falls. The children set the stage for the story to reveal much about Tchaikovsky -- his life in Russia, his love of music and his fears of conducting. In the end, both the composer and the children discover something about courage -- and about themselves.

This recording features more than 24 of Tchaikovsky's best-known and best-loved works including The Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, the First Piano Concerto, String Serenade and 1812 Overture. Also included is a musical mosaic of well-known American music of the time, including ragtime, spirituals and popular folk classics.
