Rules for Young Musicians (Schumann)
Rules for Young Musicians (Жизненные правила для молодых музыкантов) (TH 331 ; ČW 629)  is Tchaikovsky's translation of Robert Schumann's Musikalische Haus- und Lebensregeln für junge Musiker (1849).
Nothing is known about the history of this translation, which presumably dates from 1868 (it was approved by the state censor on 20 July/1 August that year). It was published by Pyotr Jurgenson in 1869, in an edition with the Russian translation and original German text printed side by side. A second edition was published in 1877, and the title of the third edition (1884) was altered to Rules and Advice for Young Musicians (Жизненные правила и советы молодым музыкантам).
The Rules were included in volume 3Б of Tchaikovsky's Complete Collected Works (1961), edited by Vladimir Protopopov.
