Chaykovsky

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (25 April (7 May) 1840 – 25 October (6 November) 1893) was a Russian composer of the late-Romantic period, some of whose works are among the most popular music in the classical repertoire.

He was the first Russian composer whose music made a lasting impression internationally, bolstered by his appearances as a guest conductor in Europe and the United States. Tchaikovsky was honored in 1884, by Emperor Alexander III, and awarded a lifetime pension.
