Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky was born on this day in 1840 – 178 years ago.

The first Russian composer whose music made a lasting impression internationally, Tchaikovsky‘s signature works include some of the most popular theatrical music in the classical repertoire.

He died in 1893 from cholera – just 9 days after the premiere of his Sixth ‘Pathétique’ Symphony.
