Program Notes on In Church, Op. 39, No. 23 by Tchaikovsky :

This choral-like piece In Church, Op. 39, No. 23 is the twenty-third of 24 pieces in Tchaikovsky's Album for the Young.

It was first published by Jurgenson in 1878 as No. 24.

Tchaikovsky's In Church is written in the key of E minor.

It is appropriate for Grade 5 piano students.

This meditative piece In Church by Tchaikovsky features an A-A-B-C-C' musical form :
  1. Section A (measures 1 to 12, repeated 13 to 24) : this phrase is first played softly and then repeated in mezzo-forte

  2. Section B (measures 25 to 32) : this section acts as a codetta for section A

  3. Section C (measures 33 to 40) : this phrase features chords in the right hand over an ostinato tonic in the left hand

  4. Section C' (measures 41 to 52) : a variant of section C played one octave lower and ending with a perdendosi codetta
Please note that in this score, the slurs are faithful to Tchaikovsky's autograph manuscript.
