The greatest of all Russian composers, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky began his study as a lawyer, but soon became one of the first students of the newly established St. Petersburg Conservatory. All his professional life as a composer Tchaikovsky enjoyed a generous financial support from Nadezhda von Meck, a Tchaikovsky’s admirer. Widely using Russian tunes in his music, Tchaikovsky nevertheless belongs to the international school of composition. Tchaikovsky was appointed professor of the Moscow Conservatory that now carries his name.
