Tchaikovsky's Legacy

Tchaikovsky was brought into a very rich family, a family in which had a bright yellow mansion at the foothill of the Urals. So what I can see from that is that he had an okay childhood. Even though his family was not very well known for their abilities or interest in music, Tchaikovsky inherited his musical talent from someone in his family.
