This tuneful Italian Song, Op. 39, No. 15 is the fifteenth of 24 pieces in Tchaikovsky's Album for the Young.

It was first published by Jurgenson in 1878 as No. 15.

Tchaikovsky's Italian Song is written in the key of D Major.

It is appropriate for Grade 4 piano students.

This Italian Song by Tchaikovsky features an A-A'-B-B' musical form :
  1. Section A (measures 1 to 8) : ending on the dominant in the right hand

  2. Section A' (measures 9 to 16) : same as A, but ending on the tonic in the right hand

  3. Section B (measures 17 to 32) : a contrasting section featuring joyful sixteenth notes in the right hand

  4. Section B' (measures 33 to 49) : same as B, but with different sixteenth notes and final cadence
Please note that in this score, the slurs and dynamics are faithful to Tchaikovsky's autograph manuscript.

This lovely Italian Song is written in triple meter and has a tuneful and joyful melody which almost sounds like happy Italians singing in the street!
