About the Composer
Pyotr Il’yich Tchaikovsky (May 7, 1840-November 6, 1893) was a Russian composer of the Romantic era. While not part of thenationalistic music group known as “The Five”, Tchaikovsky wrote music which, in the opinion of Harold Schonberg, was distinctlyRussian: plangent, introspective, with modally-inflected melody and harmony.
