Tchaikovsky's early life

When Tchaikovsky was a young boy his mother passed away due to the deadly Cholera. He was forever scared from this tragedy. Although this was sad he had his nanny or at the time his best friend Fanny. Fanny helped him grieve although hit worked at the time he still always missed his mother and had her on his mind often.

Tchaikovsky's Sugar Plum Fairy Video segment

This masterpiece is the "Sugar Plum Fairy" its a part of the well known Nutcracker. Which is sometimes in some places played during Christmas. You may know the beat " da da dada dada da dada da dada".

Tchaikovsky's Amazing Legacy

Tchaikovsky's death of his mother did not stop him from creating and performing his amazing music. In my mind Tchaikovsky's is the most talented person I have read about. Although he wasn't a prodigy like another famous composer and music creator Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart He still did really well on his own.
