Children's Album

In 1878 Tchaikovsky wrote of his “idea to make a small contribution to the stock of children’s musical literature.”  He continues, “I want to create a series of individual pieces just for children.” 

And so his Children’s Album was born, which includes twenty-four movements for piano, with such titles as “Hobby-Horses” and “March of the Wooden Soldiers.”
