This course examines the life and principal works of Pyotr Il’ich Tchaikovsky. The biographical component will bring forward new insights into the composer’s life based on recent and ongoing research in Russia, after establishing a context for the challenge of being a composer in Russia in the 1860s and 1870s. A selection of major compositions will be discussed in class, including but not limited to the operas Evgenii Onegin and The Queen of Spades, other theatre works, a number of symphonies, chamber pieces (First Quartet, Sextet ‘Souvenir of Florence’), and other works. Students electing MUSICOL 507 will write a substantial paper on a composition by Tchaikovsky not studied in lecture, placing it in the context of his milieu and his other works. Other grading factors will be examinations—one (possibly two) midterms and a final.
