In April, 1878, Tchaikovski wrote: “I am working very hard. Tomorrow I shall begin a collection of miniature pieces for children. I thought, long ago, that it would not be a bad thing to do all in my power to enrich the childrens’ musical litterature. I want to write a whole series of perfectly easy pieces and to find titles for them which would interest children, as Schumann has done.” These 24 piano works are actually a collection of miniature pieces reminiscent of childhood, similar to Schumann’s “Album for the young”. Each selection is delightful and entertaining for students and audiences of all ages. Here is the fifth one: “March of the wooden soldiers”. Separated parts are available for free. Duration: about 1mn Original score for solo piano
