Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840-1893) was a Russian composer whose works included symphonies, concertos, operas, ballets, and chamber music.
Tchaikovsky wrote 10 operas including Eugene Onegin and ballet scores such as The Nutcracker, The Sleeping Beauty and the Swan Lake. Listening to these, nobody can be in any doubt that Tchaikovsky had a massive talent for creating highly melodic, catchy tunes – which is one of the main reasons that his ballets are performed so often today.
