Happy Birthday Tchaikovsky!
"Pëtr Il'ich Chaikovskiy, IPA [ˈpʲɵtr ɪlʲˈjitɕ tɕɪjˈkofskʲɪj]; often called Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky (pronounced /ˈpiːtər ˈɪlɨtʃ tʃaɪˈkɒvski/) in English) (May 7, 1840 [O.S. April 25] – November 6, 1893 [O.S. October 25])[a 2] was a Russian composer of the Romantic era. Tchaikovsky wrote music across a range of genres, including symphony, opera, ballet, instrumental, chamber and song. He wrote some of the most popular concert and theatrical music in the current classical repertoire, including the ballets Swan Lake, The Sleeping Beauty and The Nutcracker, as well as the 1812 Overture, his First Piano Concerto, his last three numbered symphonies, and the opera Eugene Onegin."
Well, i finished my last recital piece last night. RELIEF. Now all i have to do is clean all my pieces. I'm very happy to be finished with the choreography end of the process. Picking mama up from the airport today. She was out visiting her sister. Hopefully i will get my butt into class next week and probably starting rehearsals soon for the wine tasting in June.
Big opening thi Saturday for my booba and his Yoga/Ballet inspired illustration/photography. I'll post picture of the piece after the show. They are really lovely.
