DID YOU KNOW...
Though among the most popular composers, Tchaikovsky is known by just a few pieces in the Untied States.
Tchaikovsky's music is very Russian even though he only rarely used actual folk songs in his works.
Swan Lake, one of the greatest ballets of all time, was originally written as an entertainment for his sister's children.
His two popular concertos- for piano and for violin- were initially regarded as unplayable and were rejected by the intended performers.
