WRITING to his friend and benefactor,
Madame von Meek , In 1880,
Tchaikovsky said that his Muse had been very benevolent, for ho .had written two long works very rapidly. One was the' 1812' Overture, of which he said, ' It has no great artistic value ' ; the other was the Serenade in C (his Op. 48), which, he says,
' on the contrary, I wrote from an inward impulse ; I felt it.' It was one of tho works he conducted in London in 1888, when he was paying his first visit to this country.
The Serenade contains four Movements, of which wo are to hear two, a Waltz, and a Finale based on folk-tunes, one a hauling song of the Volga boatmen, and the other a street song.
