Notable Music
Description
Awarded a "Repertoire 10" by Classica magazine, this 1979 set couples Vivaldi's ever-popular set of concertos The Four Seasons with Tchaikovsky's 12-movement set of miniatures The Seasons, a high point of his compositions for solo piano.

"In 1875, an editor named N.M. Bernard approached Tchaikovsky with the idea of writing 12 short piano pieces, one to be published each month in his magazine Nouvelliste. Tchaikovsky titled his pieces after the 12 months of the year—each a calendar snapshot, accompanied by a more descriptive subtitle and a short verse of poetry.... Short, salon-like piano pieces were in vogue at the time, and were a potentially viable source of income for the cash-strapped Tchaikovsky. At this point in his career, he had yet to become a big-name composer, and he hadn't yet encountered his fabulously wealthy benefactor Nadezhda von Meck."—NPR
