Peter Ilyitch Tchaikovsky (1840-1893) was one of the outstanding composers of the late 19th century and the best known of all Russian composers. His genius for creating melodies, his mastery of musical structure, and his highly developed sense of musical drama enabled him to reach directly to the hearts of his listeners. Composer of such great works as the 1812 Overture, Swan Lake, The Nutcracker, The Sleeping Beauty, and the famous Pathetique for violin, his life reflected both great success and deep despair. Even today, his untimely death at the age of only 53 remains shrouded in mystery.
