Published after: P. I. Tchaikovsky. Selected Works for Piano. Book 2. — Moscow, Muzgiz, 1949.
The present edition of Tchaikovsky's selected piano pieces is based on his Collected Works (Vols. 51a, 51b, 52 and 53). Since the composer often modified the music while preparing it for further publications, we have used also some other editions of Tchaikovsky's works, including those revised by Tchaikovsky for Jurgenson.
The author's marks related to tempo, dynamics, phrasing, fingering and pedal — in short, all the marks found in the original text — are printed in large characters. All the supplementary marks, both those from Jurgenson's new edition (most probably approved by Tchaikovsky himself) and those added by the present editors, are printed in small characters.

One of Tchaikovsky's not numerous variation cycles for piano, with a rather complex texture. Dedicated to Tchaikovsky's teacher, the famous pianist Anton Rubinstein.
