The great composer Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky arrives in New York for the grand opening of Carnegie Hall. It's all aboard for fun as two children join the composer on a musical journey to Niagara Falls. The children set the stage for the story to reveal much about Tchaikovsky -- his life in Russia, his love of music and his fears of conducting. In the end, both the composer and the children discover something about courage -- and about themselves.

This recording features more than 24 of Tchaikovsky's best-known and best-loved works including The Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, the First Piano Concerto, String Serenade and 1812 Overture. Also included is a musical mosaic of well-known American music of the time, including ragtime, spirituals and popular folk classics.
