Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (English: /ˈkɒfski/ ; Russian: Пётр Ильич Чайковский, tr. Pyotr Ilyích Chaykóvskiy; IPA: [pʲɵtr ɪlʲˈjitɕ tɕɪjˈkofskʲɪj] ( listen); 25 April/7 May 1840 – 25 October/6 November 1893), often anglicized as Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky, was a Russian composer of the 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. He was honored in 1884 by Emperor Alexander III, and awarded a lifetime pension.
