Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840 – 1893) was a Russian composer during the late-Romantic period. Although his music was and remains popular, it originally received a mixed critical reception, with some Russian commentators feeling that it did not represent their native musical values. Conversely, prominent western critics also claimed that it did not follow western principles adequately. Despite this, Tchaikovsky's work is some of the most popular music in the classical repertoire. This volume contains the complete score for Pyotr Tchaikovsky's “18 Pieces, op.72”, published in 1893.
