Happy Birthday to Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, born this day in 1840 – 

Tchaikovsky began music lessons while attending law school – in 1862 he became the 1st composition student at Russia’s first conservatory.

If you have experienced the ballets ‘Swan Lake’, ‘The Nutcracker’, or ‘Sleeping Beauty’ then you know the strong emotion of his music.
