The World's Greatest Music
How much do you know about Tchaikovsky, one of the romantic era's greatest composers? Our handy facts gallery will shed light on his life, loves and music.
Tchaikovsky's exciting festive favourite, The Nutcracker, was first performed in 1892.

Luckily, Tchaikovsky's innovative score was viewed slightly more favourably. AFP PHOTO/JOHN D MCHUGH
