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 was originally composed for the piano in the key of E minor.

This score is an arrangement for string quartet (violins 1 and 2, viola and violoncello).

It remains in the original key of E minor.

It is appropriate for Grade 3 string players.

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 upper voices over an ostinato tonic in the violoncello

  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 dynamics are faithful to Tchaikovsky's autograph manuscript.
