  • Composer Augusta Holmès was a French/Irish contemporary of Tchaikovsky’s, and her music has only recently been re-discovered
  • Clara Schumann was one of the most celebrated pianists of the 19th century, though her own compositions were often overshadowed by those of her husband Robert Schumann
  • Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 6 is known as the Pathétique Symphony, but in his native Russian the original sub-title meant “passionate”
