Piano Concerto No 1

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Classical, Romantic
Born: 7 May 1840, Votkinsk, Russia
Nationality: Russian
Died: 6 November 1893, Saint Petersburg, Russia

Tchaikovsky was a Romantic composer and the first Russian composer to make a lasting international impression. In 1884 Tsar Alexander III honoured him with a lifetime pension. Tchaikovsky was educated for a career as a civil servant as there was little opportunity for a musical career in Russia and no public music education system. When the opportunity arose he entered Saint Petersburg Conservatory, and graduated in 1865.
