Tchaikovsky Off the Beaten Path

July 27, 2013
 

The composer Tchaikovsky, in his symphonies, wrote highly dramatic music. In some other works, he tried to express in music the stories of famous plays, especially those of Shakespeare. Tchaikovsky's  version of "Romeo and Juliet" is often played, but his "Hamlet" and "The Tempest" are less often heard. We will explore off-the-beaten path Tchaikovsky.
