    A surprise encounter with a young American girl, Jennie, reveals much about Tchaikovsky – his life in Russia, his love of music and his fears of conducting. This is a poignant story of the meeting of old world influences and new world experiences; a tale of contrast, courage and classical music.   stars - I really enjoyed this book! & it’s one i’ll read again and again. It will also stay in my mind for a while too. This is going to be long, i’m not sorry. I’ll start with what I loved. (Which is pretty much everything!)

Most of the entries were written in note-book format by Tchaikovsky himself; there is one copy made by Modest Tchaikovsky (TH ), and one diary (TH ) is represented only by a single sheet of paper. Three of these diaries form a more or less consecutive narrative, covering the period of twenty three months, from February to December
