Tchaikovsky was a great composer and unlike the composers like Beethoven and Mozart, his songs were soft and gentle. He was gifted in music and was able to turn a play into a piece of music (Romeo and Juliet). Even though he went through a lot of hardships, he still compose songs. We still listen to his songs like the Nutcracker during the winter seasons and we still cherish his music today.
