List of compositions by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky wrote several works well known among the general classical public-Romeo and Juliet, the 1812 Overture, and his three ballets: The Nutcracker, Swan Lake, and The Sleeping Beauty. These 5, along with two of his four concertos, three of his six symphonies (seven if his program symphony Manfred is included), and two of his 10 operas, are probably among his most familiar works.
Peter (or Pyotr) Ilyich Tchaikovsky is a composer whose music has made an indellible impression on the world, yet many things seemed to be stacked against him. His mother died from Cholera when Tchaikovsky was only 14 years old and this great loss affected the boy deeply. As a boy and also in later life, he suffered from various neuroses and experienced periods of deep depression. Although he learned the piano as a boy, Tchaikovsky was initially to study law and his first profession was as a clerk performing administrative functions
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (25 April 1840 settlement Votkinsk, Vyatka Province – 25 October 1893, the Saint-Petersburg, Russia) was a Russian composer of the late-Romantic period; teacher, conductor and music critic, of Ukrainian origin. Pyotr Tchaikovsky was born at Votkinsk in Viatka Province, which is located in the Urals 600 miles east of Moscow. He was the second of six surviving children of Ilya Tchaikovsky, a mining engineer then in charge of the iron works in Votkinsk, and Alexandra Assier, a descendant of French émigrés. On his father’s side, Tchaikovsky’s origin may be traced to Ukrainian village Nikolayevka in Poltava region.
PW 2. Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. Symphony No. 6 "Pathétique" (LP). Symphony No 6 - Op. 74 "Pathetique" (LP, Album).
Tchaikovsky's greatest symphony and, possibly, his greatest work. The 'Pathétique' is one of the defining sounds of the romantic period, but the story behind it is just as intriguing. The symphony’s nickname, 'Pathétique', was added by Tchaikovsky’s brother, with the blessing of the composer. In those moments, at least, the music seems far from autobiographical: if Tchaikovsky was struggling with suicidal thoughts, they’re by no means evident throughout
