As a lifelong smoker, Bernstein battled emphysema, and in 1990 he died of pneumonia. In the first 10 days of war were only given more than thousand (!) concerts. Italian operas were composed in the Bel canto traditions, and these led directly to the masterworks of Giuseppe Verdi, while the idea of the German music drama was established by Richard Wagner. His Rococo pastiches also may have offered escape into a musical world purer than his own, into which he felt himself irresistibly drawn. (In this sense, Tchaikovsky operated in the opposite manner to Igor Stravinsky, who turned to Neoclassicism partly as a form of compositional self-discovery.) Tchaikovsky's attraction to ballet might have allowed a similar refuge into a fairy-tale world, where he could freely write dance music within a tradition of French elegance. [145] Of Tchaikovsky's Western contemporaries, Robert Schumann stands out as an influence in formal structure, harmonic practices and piano writing, according to Brown and musicologist Roland John Wiley. [146] As mentioned earlier, Asafyev comments that Schumann left his mark on Tchaikovsky not just as a formal influence but also as an example of musical dramaturgy and self-expression. [147] Leon Botstein claims the music of Franz Liszt and Richard Wagner also left their imprints on Tchaikovsky's orchestral style. [148] [a 12] The late-Romantic trend for writing orchestral suites, begun by Franz Lachner, Jules Massenet and Joachim Raff after the rediscovery of Bach 's works in that genre, may have influenced Tchaikovsky to try his own hand at them. [149] His teacher Anton Rubinstein's opera The Demon became a model for the final tableau of Eugene Onegin. [150] So did Léo Delibes ' ballets Coppélia and Sylvia for The Sleeping Beauty [a 13] and Georges Bizet 's opera Carmen (a work Tchaikovsky admired tremendously) for The Queen of Spades. [151] Otherwise, it was to composers of the past that Tchaikovsky turned—Beethoven, whose music he respected; [152] Mozart, whose music he loved; [152] Glinka, whose opera A Life for the Tsar made an indelible impression on him as a child and whose scoring he studied assiduously; [153] and Adolphe Adam, whose ballet Giselle was a favorite of his from his student days and whose score he consulted while working on The Sleeping Beauty. [154] Beethoven's string quartets may have influenced Tchaikovsky's attempts in that medium. [155] Other composers whose work interested Tchaikovsky included Hector Berlioz, Felix Mendelssohn, Giacomo Meyerbeer and Henry Litolff. [156] Maes maintains that, regardless of what he was writing, Tchaikovsky's main concern was how his music impacted his listeners on an aesthetic level, at specific moments in the piece and on a cumulative level once the music had finished.

Whether this is true or not, the two were close companions after Giuseppina’s death, and a number of the soprano roles in Verdi’s opera were written specifically for her. After the war in 1948, Shostakovich and many of his contemporaries’ works were banned, and they were publicly scorned for their so-called “formalist” compositions. He adored the Finnish countryside, and many of his pieces were inspired by nature. Through third parties an unusual but helpful arrangement with the immensely wealthy Nadezhda von Meck was made.

Also romantic composers regularly added codas and introductions and to traditional forms or rather the classical forms. He graduated in May of 1892 with the title of “free artist.” After the death of Tchaikovsky in 1893, he was inspired to write a second Trio élégiaque, and four years later his First Symphony was premiered. In 1787 he became a private musician to the Austrian emperor, which gave him a steady income and steady work composing.

Alfred Bruneau ( 1857-1934,composer,who brought realism to French opera). thinks that if Massenet had desired he could have written works on a bolder and larger scale. Although musically precocious, Tchaikovsky was educated for a career as a civil servant.
