Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (Composer)

Born: 7th May 1840, Votkinsk

Died: 6th November 1893, Saint Petersburg

Nationality: Russian

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky was a Russian composer of the Romantic period. He was the first Russian composer whose music would make a lasting impression internationally. He was honored in 1884 by Tsar Alexander III and awarded a lifetime pension.

Although musically precocious, Tchaikovsky was educated for a career as a civil servant. There was scant opportunity for a musical career in Russia at the time and no system of public music education.
