Tchaikovsky’s works for children

Petya, Petya, how could you! Exchange jurisprudence for a pipe! – the angry uncle of a negligent nephew, who quit the service of a titular adviser in the Ministry of Justice for the sake of serving Eutherpe, the patroness of music, was chastising with such words.

ROMAN – KORSAKOV: MUSIC OF THREE ELEMENTS – SEA, SPACE AND TALES

Listen to the music of Rimsky-Korsakov. You won’t notice how you are transported into the world of Tales, magic, science fiction. “The Night Before Christmas”, “Golden Cockerel”, “Snegurochka” … These and many other works of the “Great Storyteller in Music” by Rimsky-Korsakov are imbued with a childhood dream of a fabulous life, of good and justice. The heroes of epics, legends, myths come from the realm of music to your dream world. With each new chord, the boundaries of the tale are pushed wider and wider. And, now, you are no longer in the music room. The walls have dissolved, and you are a participant in the battle with the sorcerer. And it depends only on your courage how the fabulous battle with evil ends! Victory of Good. The composer dreamed about it. He wanted every person on Earth, all of Mankind, to become a pure, void-free creation of the Great SPACE. Rimsky-Korsakov believed that if a person learns to “look at the stars”, the world of people will become better, more perfect, kinder. He dreamed that sooner or later the Harmony of man and infinite Cosmos would come, just as the harmonious sound of a “small” note in a huge symphony creates beautiful music. Continue reading
