The Life and Letters of Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky
The present volume, translated from the monumental Russian biography by the composer's brother, is the result of a careful selection of material. The leading idea which the editor has kept in view has been to preserve as far as possible the autobiographical character of the book, preferring to let Tchaikovsky himself tell the story of his life. This title is cited and recommended by Books for College Libraries. The editor and translator, Rosa Newmarch, was a well-known of English music writer and annotator, and a President of the Royal College of Music. She is also the author of Tchaikovksy: His Life and Works.
