Timberdoodle's review
From Carnegie Hall to Niagara Falls
The great composer Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky arrives in New York for the grand opening of Carnegie Hall. It's all aboard for fun as two children join the composer on a musical journey to Niagara Falls. The children set the stage for the story to reveal much about Tchaikovsky - his life in Russia, his love of music and his fears of conducting. In the end, both the composer and the children discover something about courage - and about themselves.

Tchaikovsky's Best-known and Best-loved Works
This recording features more than 24 of Tchaikovsky's best-known and best-loved works including The Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, the First Piano Concerto, String Serenade and 1812 Overture. Also included is a musical mosaic of well-known American music of the time, including ragtime, spirituals and popular folk classics.

Reviewer: Vicki Childs from CLOVERDALE, OR United States  
I bought this for my 14 year old daughter to add to her collection that she began around the age of 6.  She has treasured this series over the years but didn't have Tchaikovsky so I  bought it on a whim and surprised her with it on a day she was feeling down.  She was absolutely thrilled to receive it and although geared to younger children, it makes her smile and lifts her spirits when she listens to these CD's.  A "must have" product in our house!

Reviewer: Kirsten K. from Tacoma, WA United States  
Because of Tchaikovsky Discovers America, my kids (ages 6, 4.5, and 2.5) have ALL shouted, "TCHAIKOVSKY!" upon hearing some of his music playing.  I think some of the story line is lost on the younger ones, but between the music and story, it holds a wide age appeal.  Definitely worth the price;  highly recommended.
