Wendy Thompson. Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s works have established him among the first rank of European composers. Under the repressive autocratic rule of the Tsars, the educated middle classes in 19th-century Russia explored their own folk tradition to discover a cultural identity. Fusing this musical heritage with the traditions of the Western symphony, Tchaikovsky fashioned eloquent, passionate, & supremely tuneful music with a direct emotional appeal. This lavishly illustrated biography recreates the dramatic events of Tchaikovsky’s controversial career. Included are extracts, in simple keyboard arrangements, from some of his most popular works, including the “Pathetique Symphony,” the “1812 Overture,” & the “First Piano Concerto.”
