“Tchaikovsky wrote the Children’s Album and the Op.37 Sonata at the same time, and they’re so different. It amazes me that these are so little known in UK. The Children’s Album is fantastic - a masterpiece. He wrote three volumes of piano music, and what of it is known here? ... The trouble is, Tchaikovsky is almost always played badly! There are two wrong ways: the Russian wrong way and the Western wrong way. Most Russians make a rough sound, full of violent emotions, heart on the sleeve. Westerners often have a refinement that the Russians lack, and which is an important part of Tchaikovsky too, but it has no power.” - Mikhail Pletnev
