Piotr Illich Tchaikovsky

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky was a 19th-century Russian composer, widely regarded as one of the most important and well-known composers in the history of classical music. He was born in Votkinsk, Russia, in 1840 and began studying music at an early age. At the age of 21, he entered the Moscow Conservatory and studied composition there with Anton Rubinstein.

Tchaikovsky es conocido por sus sinfonías, óperas, ballets y piezas de música de cámara, así como por sus arreglos de piezas folklóricas rusas. Algunas de sus obras más famosas incluyen la Sinfonía n.º 5 en mi menor, la Sinfonía n.º 6 en si menor (conocida como «Patética»), la ópera «Eugene Onegin» y el ballet «El Lago de los Cisnes».

Tchaikovsky was also an important conductor and was the founding director of the Society of Russian Composers. Although his personal life was somewhat complicated, due to his homosexuality and mental health problems, his music remains highly appreciated and is some of the most popular around the world. He died in 1893, at the age of 53, in St. Petersburg, Russia.
