TCHAIKOVSKY 1840 - 1893

Tchaikovsky was born into a modest family on the bottom rank of the Russian aristocracy. His father was a mining engineer and after an early education from a French governess, Tchaikovsky was sent to the School of Jurisprudence. On graduation, he began working at the Ministry of Justice but a few years later enrolled at the newly opened St Petersburg Conservatory. As one of its first graduates he launched into the doubtful career of music composition. His gifts were soon recognised and he went on to achieve extraordinary international acclaim. The programme traces his career and ends with a brief overview of his works.
