Pëtr Il'ič Čajkovskij

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840 – 1893) Russian composer of late Romanticism, brilliant and versatile, forged his own style by consolidating the use of compositional conventions of classical music alongside traditional Russian music.
Very important is his production dedicated to the ballet of which he is considered father under the musical aspect. His masterpieces, among which Il lago dei cigni (1876), La bella addormentata nel bosco (1890), Schiaccianoci (1892), bear in mind the choreographic and rhythmic needs of the representation, imposing and suggesting new and daring solutions to the performers.
