This "dramatized biography" presents a condensed look at the life of the famed Russian composer Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky, interspersed with brief but powerful selections from his music. Richard Mayes proves an able narrator with perfect elocution, while Steve Hodson performs dramatic quotations - a somewhat unusual format that works better than it might. Though an older recording, the sound quality here is excellent, and those interested in Tchaikovsky's life will find this an accessible introduction to the great artist.
