Tchaikovsky - His Life and MusicDVD - 2000
This course is a biographical and musical study of Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840-1893), a man defined by and indivisible from the music which became an outlet for all the shifting moods of his turbulent soul. As an artist-he was the first full-time, formally trained, professional composer in Russian history-Tchaikovsky walked a fine and difficult line between his Romantic penchant for expression and the demands of Classical structure, which give his works their shape. A highly popular composer, he posessed the unique ability in his day to blend the fire and passion of Russian nationalism with Germanic compositional technique.
