Written in September and October of 1880 Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings was completed quickly. While away visiting his sister in Kamenka he "immediately began to feel cheerful, well and relaxed". This work is perfectly reflective of warmth and happiness the composer experienced on his Autumn holiday. Though originally intended to be a suite, Tchaikovsky ultimately created a symphony for strings. Because of its sunniness this work soon become a concert favorite among string players and with audiences worldwide. This newly engraved edition by Richard W. Sargeant Jr. uses the composer's manuscript and the first edition as its primary sources, correcting the many errors and editorial additions that have been added over the years. A beautiful score showcasing one of Tchaikovsky happiest times as the composer intended it. Large conductor's score and parts are also available from Serenissima Music.
