The 125th anniversary of the birth of Tchaikovsky marked by Monaco Post

September 3rd, 2015 is glad to inform that Monaco Post has prepared for issuing a special stamp to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the birth of Tchaikovsky. The item has been already designed and is scheduled to be put on sale on the 10th of September.

A Russian composer from the Romantic era, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840–1893) distinguished himself in all genres. However, it was in orchestral music – symphonies, suites and concertos – that he produced his best work.

He lent his talents to ballet music, adding a symphonic dimension to a genre previously considered to be inferior. His music reflects his very sensitive and tormented nature.
