A Day With Tschaikovsky

Here is another great “day in the life” book, this time featuring a composer.

Read about Tschaikovsky as if you were there in his home, experiencing his life!

Tschaikovsky, rousing himself with difficulty from the heavy, almost lethargic sleep of exhaustion into which he nightly falls, gathers his wits together and restores his scattered consciousness by means of tea.

This book would make a great addition to your composer study!
