The Music of 1882–1884

The Music of 1882–1884

(p.257) Chapter Sixteen The Music of 1882–1884

Oxford University Press

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's works of 1882–1884 echo those of 1878–1881: op. 51, like op. 40, is a set of notated improvisations; the All-Night Vigil came in the wake of Nikolay Rubinstein's death, just as the Liturgy came after the events of 1877; the Second Suite, op. 53, is an experimental orchestral work like the 1st; the Children's Songs of op. 54 echo the Children's Album, op. 39, as the Third Suite, op. 55 with its elegy, waltz, and variations, echoes the Serenade for Strings; the Concert Fantasia for Piano and Orchestra, op. 56, returns to the dashing pianism of the Piano Sonata. Mazepa, a historical opera, recalls The Maid of Orleans in that respect. Two short pieces are adjuncts to Tchaikovsky's complex compositions of 1884.
