Complete Collected Works

The Soviet critical edition of Tchaikovsky's Complete Collected Works (Полное собрание сочинений) was published in 107 volumes between 1940 and 1990, and covered the composer's compositions, writings and correspondence, except for his religious choral works and diaries.

The inclusion of fragments from the Tsarist Russian anthem in works such as The Year 1812 and the Slavonic March was deemed unacceptable for most of the Soviet era, and in the printed scores such passages were either replaced by other music or excised altogether. The texts of some vocal works were also rewritten on ideological grounds, and Tchaikovsky's liturgical music was entirely ignored until 1990 when it was included in a supplemental volume.

Although many works were published for the first time in this series, others were arbitrarily omitted: for example, the full scores of Vakula the Smith and the suite from The Nutcracker, the piano version of the Mazurka from the play Dmitry the Pretender and Vasily Shuysky, the composer’s vocal-piano score of the music for Hamlet, the familiar 1889 version of the Piano Concerto No. 1, and the Anastasie-Valse. Many volumes suffered from a lack of adequate proofreading, combined with serious editorial inconsistencies and deficiencies.

In the 1970s the musical series was reprinted in the United States by Edwin F. Kalmus, with the original volumes being divided or combined for this reprint. The Soviet editorial prefaces were omitted, and the Russian title pages were replaced with English versions (not always reliably).

The volumes covering Tchaikovsky's letters were purged of references to homosexuality, intimate relationships or even illnesses (whether his own, or those of his relatives and servants). Profanities and abusive vocabulary were also removed, as were passages considered to be ideologically unacceptable in Soviet times. The most substantial cuts were made in Tchaikovsky's letters to his brothers from the 1870s, particularly those concerning with his marriage to Antonina Milyukova in 1877.
