The International Appeal
of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

Tchaikovsky was born in Votkinsk in 1840 and died in St. Petersburg in 1893. During his stay at the St. Petersburg Conservatory, the Russian composer and conductor studied composition with A. Rubinstein.

In 1866, Tchaikovsky worked in Moscow at a new Conservatory as a professor of harmony, during which time he wrote his first symphony. Between 1868 and 1875, he composed his second symphony, three operas, and his famous Bb minor Piano Concerto, along with other compositions.

Tchaikovsky, an admirer of Mozart’s music, had amazing flair for melody and effective orchestrating. He was a composer of both national and international fame and still today has a wide audience of listeners and performers.

An Amazing Tchaikovsky Fact

Tchaikovsky owed a lot to the generosity of Nadejda von Meck, who gave the composer annual allowances over a period of many years so that he could be free to compose.
