World's Classical Masterpieces- Peter Tchaikovsky

Swan Lake Finale - Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky

Tchaikovsky at Cambridge, 1893.
Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky (May 7, 1840 - November 6, 1893) was a Russian composer of the Romantic era. While not part of the nationalistic music group known as "The Five," Tchaikovsky wrote music which was distinctly Russian: plangent, introspective, with modally- inflected melody and harmony. Tchaikovsky died on November 6, 1893, nine days after the premiere of his Sixth Symphony, the Pathetique.
