    Italian Song, Op. 39, No. 15

    Composer: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840 - 1893)



    Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (Пётр Ильи́ч Чайко́вский)(7 May 1840 – 6 November 1893) was a Russian composer of the Romantic period. He was the first Russian composer whose music would make a lasting impression internationally. He wrote some of the most popular concert and theatrical music in the current classical repertoire, including the ballets Swan Lake and The Nutcracker, the 1812 Overture, his First Piano Concerto, Violin Concerto, the Romeo and Juliet Overture-Fantasy, several symphonies, and the opera Eugene Onegin.

    The Album for the Young, or Children's Album (Детский альбом), Op. 39 (TH 141 ; ČW 150 to 173), subtitled "24 simple pieces à la Schumann", is a cycle of 24 piano pieces composed between May and July 1878. Italian Song is the No. 15 of the album, with the key signature of D major. My arrangement for the guitar is on the same key.
