Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

Pyotr Il'yich Tchaikovsky (1840-93)
Born: 1840
Died: 1893

Tchaikovsky is the most popular of all Russian composers, his music combining some nationalist elements with a more cosmopolitan view, but it is music that could only have been written by a Russian. In every genre he shows himself to be one of the greatest melodic fountains who ever lived.
