Children's Album, Op. 39

Pyotr Tchaikovsky wrote his Children's Album, a series of short pieces of piano solo, in 1878, and published in the same year through P. Jurgenson, dedicating the work to Vladimir Davydov (1871-1906), his nephew and lover. The work, named Op. 39 is in 24 short movements, the longest lasting a mere 85 bars. Editions other than the first used different numbering for the pieces, based in the composer's autograph score, resulting in some confusion. The whole set takes about 28 minutes to perform.

This piece contains the following parts:
