Essay and recommended readings.
"UNBRIDLED EMOTION" would perhaps best describe the music of Tchaikovsky. His deep-sensitivity saturated his music producing lush melodies that have enamored listeners for over a century.
Yet Tchaikovsky's personal life was in turmoil from the very beginning. As a youth, Tchaikovsky faced the hardship of losing his mother at age 14 and was forced to deal with the cold atmosphere of a military boarding school. As such, young Peter shied away from the harsh and cold world and found solace in music. It was upon hearing Mozart's Don Giovanni that Tchaikovsky decided to dedicate his life to music.
Abandoning his civil service position, Tchaikovsky entered the St. Petersburg Conservatory to study under Anton Rubinstein. Fortunately Tchaikovsky's father, who although disapproved of Peter's decision for a musical career, didn't interfere with his son's wishes. As a student, Tchaikovsky wrote The Storm 1864 and later in 1868, under the direction of Mily Balakirev, he composed

    Early Life:
    Pyotr (Peter) Tchaikovsky was born in Russia on May 7, 1840. He grew up in a family of five sons and one daughter. His father, Ilya Petrovitch, was the son of a government mining engineer. His mother, Alexandra, was the second of Ilya's three wives. Tchaikovsky's piano lessons began at age four with a local teacher. He could read music within three years. However, his parents decided to steer him away from music, sending him instead to the School of Jurisprudence in St. Petersburg to secure his future as a civil servant.
    Tchaikovsky's mother died in 1854 from cholera. Within a month of her death, he composed a waltz in her memory. Some people claim that the early loss of his mother may have contributed to feelings of homosexuality, which was widespread among students at the School of Jurisprudence. In 1861, he attended classes at the Russian Musical Society. The following year he moved to the new St Petersburg Conservatory. He studied harmony, counterpoint and fugue, and was obviously talented. After graduation, Tchaikovsky became the professor of harmony, composition, and the history of music at the Moscow Conservatory.
    Tchaikovsky created some of the world's greatest ballet music. His music contained both classical and romantic melodies, which prompted some critics to attack his work. Tchaikovsky believed in his music and defended it by saying that ballet music was not inferior to any other form of music. With growing confidence, he composed several unique works, from piano solos to concertos, symphonies, and operas. Tchaikovsky established himself as one of the greatest composers of the Romantic period.

    Russian composer Peter (Pyotr) Ilyich Tchaikovsky wrote some of the most-recognized melodies of classical music, and his ballet The Nutcracker endures as a winter holiday favorite. He began composing in St. Petersburg in the 1860s, while studying and teaching music at the Conservatory. By the 1870s he was gaining public notice, and after 1878 he devoted himself to composing full time. Tchaikovsky's expressive melodies and orchestrations made him an audience favorite beyond Russia, and his international travels included an American tour in 1891. Many of his works are part of the canon of classical music of the Romantic era, including the opera Eugene Onegin , the ballet Swan Lake , the overtures Romeo and Juliet and 1812 Overture and his Sixth Symphony, known as

    List of all compositions
    v d e The Nutcracker is a two-act ballet by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky . Tchaikovsky's adaptation of the story " The Nutcracker and the Mouse King " by E. T. A. Hoffmann was commissioned by the director of the Imperial Theatres Ivan Vsevolozhsky in 1891. The original production was staged by Marius Petipa on 18 December 1892, premiering on a double-bill with a now semi-forgotten Tchaikovsky opera, Iolanta The plot of Hoffmann's original story is much more complex than that of the ballet, in which events had to be considerably simplified; Hoffmann's tale contains a long flashback story within its plot entitled The Tale of the Hard Nut , explaining how and why the Prince was turned into the Nutcracker. In Hoffmann's original version, the heroine Marie's adventures with the toys and with the Nutcracker are not a dream, and the Nutcracker does not turn into a Prince after his battle with the Mouse King, but at the end of the story - after Marie tells the now inanimate Nutcracker that she would love him even if he remained ugly forever. A year and a day after she declares this, the Prince returns to Marie and asks her to marry him. She accepts, and goes back to reign with him in the Doll Kingdom. In Western countries

    Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840 - 1893)
    In time Tchaikovsky's music became more accepted in Russia. When his former benefactor stopped his allowance after 13 years, he was soon the beneficiary of funding from the Russian government. He even overcame his previous reluctance both to travel and to conduct. He travelled abroad to conduct his own music in European cities and in the US to great success. However his life was to end in tragedy. The official story is that he contacted Cholera (the same disease which had struck his mother years before) by carelessly drinking a glass of unboiled water, though a later story suggested that he committed suicide. Shortly before he died, Tchaikovsky had completed his 6th Symphony. The premier was not a great critical success, but the piece's mood of deepest despair seems prophetic.
    Tchaikovsky's music:
    Tchaikovsky has left us a wealth of great music including Symphonies and Concertos, some Operas and many shorter works. He is particularly remembered for his story-telling music, including the "Romeo and Juliet" overture and the evocative free-flowing ballet music for "Swan Lake", "The Nutcracker" and "Sleeping Beauty". Among the many familiar pieces from The Nutcracker is the

    Selected list of works
    Born in Kamsko-Votkinsk, the 7th of May 1840, Tchaikovsky was the second eldest of six children. At the age of six he could read French and German and at seven wrote verses in French and began piano lessons. He spent the first eight years of his life comparatively settled, but in 1848 his father, a mining engineer, resigned his government post which brought about a difficult period of constant moves. In 1850 Tchaikovsky began attending the St. Petersburg School of Jurisprudence, becoming a clerk in the Ministry of Justice in 1859. He studied with Nicolai Zaremba until the opening of the new St. Petersburg Conservatory in 1862, to which he transferred. The next year Tchaikovsky left his job in the Ministry of Justice to study full time at the Conservatory. Anton Rubenstein, the director of the conservatory, took an interest in Tchaikovsky and had him study everything including conducting. He was always terrified of facing an orchestra (even when in great demand as a conductor), fearing his head would fall from his shoulders. For that reason he conducted with his left hand under his chin to keep it attached. Graduating after four years he went on to teach for twelve years at the Moscow Conservatory, where he began to compose. In his first two years there he had already written his first symphony and the opera
