Perhaps more than any other composer, Tchaikovsky has earned the epithet “Master of Melody.” His music has achieved the rare distinction of pleasing both mass audiences and the most erudite critics and scholars. His valedictory Sixth Symphony runs the emotional gamut from tragic anguish to lilting lyricism to triumphant ecstasy and cosmic resignation. His Violin Concerto rivals that of Felix Mendelssohn as one of the two most popular and tuneful celebrations of the violin of all time. And his uniquely celebratory “1812” Overture— accompanied by live cannons—never fails to get hearts racing and spirits soaring.
