Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky [electronic resource]: A Concise Biography

Hossick, Malcolm
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
This program from the Famous Composers series provides an overview of the tumultuous life and influential work of Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, born to a large family with a history of military service. The film details Tchaikovsky's early loss of his mother, and how it influenced him greatly throughout his life. His musical education at the Saint Petersburg Conservatory distanced the composer from both his family, who wished him to pursue life as a civil servant, and his country and fellow Russian composers, who supported a more nationalistic style. The film also follows the composer's failed marriage and emotional breakdown, which gave way to some of his most successful works and an emotional charge in his compositions.
