Topics in 19th- and Early 20th-Century Music - Tchaikovsky

Simon A. Morrison

This course explores the career of Pyotr Tchaikovsky, from his first civic-minded compositions and salon songs through to his first ballet Swan Lake, the operas Eugene Onegin and Mazeppa, the Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Symphonies, his liturgical music, and the works that he was planning to compose before his premature death. The course considers recent Russian-and English-language scholarship on the composer, both technical and cultural-historical, with accent on his service to the Russian imperial court.
