Program Notes on Russian Song, Op. 39, No. 12 by Tchaikovsky :

This lively Russian Song, Op. 39, No. 12 is the twelfth of 24 pieces in Tchaikovsky's Album for the Young.

It was first published by Jurgenson in 1878 as No. 11.

Tchaikovsky's Russian Song is written in the key of F Major.

It is appropriate for Grade 5 piano students.

This Russian Song, Op. 39, No. 12 by Tchaikovsky features an unusual A- A'- A''- A'''- B musical form :
  1. Section A (measures 1 to 6) : a six-bar phrase made up of two 3-bar fragments

  2. Section A' (measures 7 to 12) : very similar to phrase A, but with minor differences in both hands

  3. Section A'' (measures 13 to 18) : again similar to phrase A, but this time with more elaborate accompaniment in both hands

  4. Section A''' (measures 19 to 24) : quite similar to phrase A'', but again slightly different

  5. Section B (measures 25 to 30) : A contrasting section which acts as a coda and ends with a perfect cadence
Please note that in this score, the slurs and dynamics are faithful to Tchaikovsky's autograph manuscript.
