Great Composers: Tchaikovsky BBC TV Great Composers Series Narrated by Kenneth Branagh Music performed by the St. Petersburg Philharmonic (conductor Yuri Temirkanov) DVD Color 59 min. Some Adult topics The Great Composers series presents the lives and works of seven musical giants from the Baroque era to the twentieth century. It examines the backgrounds, influences and relationships that make these seven composers part of the history of western music. Each composer's life and work is presented through extensive performance sequences, and through interviews with some of today's greatest artists and most respected authorities. The musical scores of Tchaikovsky (1840-1893) are lyrical, romantic and deeply emotional. This film endeavors to put the composer in context alongside Tolstoy as one of the most celebrated Russians of his time, examining his continuing significance in Russia today, and visiting locations which were important in Tchaikovsky's life. His life is scoured to reveal an abortive marriage, his true feelings about homosexuality and how this may have been expressed in his music. Contributors include pianists Mikhail Rudy and Evgeny Kissin, violinist Maxim Vengerov, conductor Valery Gergiev, ballerina Natalia Makarova, opera director Graham Vick and Tchaikovsky-loving streetcar driver, Valentina. Other films in the series: Mozart #853123 Puccini #853134 Bach # 853135 Beethoven #853136 Wagner #853138 Mahler #853139
