Notes & Reviews:

Because the Russian public regarded chamber music as trivial, Tchaikovksy's output in this area is relatively small. Nevertheless, Tchaikovsky produced three fine string quartets. Indeed his first quartet contains one of his most popular pieces, the "Andante cantabile", which has become well-known both in its original form and in an orchestral arrangement.
