Tchaikovsky Boris - Cello sonata

Tchaikovsky Boris - Cello sonata. You can download the PDF sheet music Tchaikovsky Boris - Cello sonata on this page. In his works, Boris Tchaikovsky created his own style of composing, which, while seemingly traditional, is combined with his absolutely individual reinterpretation of all elements of the musical language, like it can be seen in this cello sonata. The uniqueness of that style has allowed the composer's heritage to noticeably appear in many experimental currents of modern music. Easily manipulating any advanced tools of composing, Tchaikovsky primarily strived for ultimate simplicity and clear expression of the key components of musical language. His bright individuality reveals itself in this cello composition first of all at the "molecular" level of melody building. Tchaikovsky's tone is always identifiable, be it in a brief tune or a theme in unhurried development.

Boris Alexandrovich Tchaikovsky (1925-1996) is an outstanding Russian composer of the second half of the 20th century, whose importance is becoming more and more clear in the last few years. Tchaikovsky - no relation to the composer of Swan Lake - is one of a handful of composers in the post-Shostakovich generation who rose to the highest ranks of Russian music. Among the enthusiastic performers of B. Tchaikovsky's music were such renowned musicians as Mstislav Rostropovich, Galina Vishnevskaya, Kirill Kondrashin, Rudolf Barshai, Alexander Gauk, Samuel Samosud, Vladimir Fedoseyev, Viktor Pikaisen, Igor Oistrakh, and the Borodin Quartet. Boris Tchaikovsky composed four symphonies, four instrumental concertos, several symphonic opuses, six string quartets, a multitude of chamber and vocal works, and various music for film and radio.

According to the composer's friend and prominent Russian poet David Samoilov, "The outward pattern of Boris Tchaikovsky's life is simple. Its plot and content are in his works. He grew up, he studied, and what followed was music, music, and more music." Tchaikovsky was born in Moscow on September 10, 1925; his father was an expert in statistics and economic geography (and a capable self-taught violinist), and his mother was a medic. In 1934, Tchaikovsky entered the Gnessin Musical School. He continued his musical education at the Gnessin College, and then at Moscow Conservatory. Upon graduation from the Conservatory in 1949 (where he studied under Vissarion Shebalin, Dmitry Shostakovich and Nikolay Miaskovsky), Tchaikovsky got a job as a radio editor. In 1952, however, he decided to quit that job in order to devote himself to composing. In his last years (from 1989 till 1996), he taught at the Russian Gnessin Academy of Music as professor of composition.
