I’ve been up for several hours now and has been opening Google from time to time trying to search for various things. All of a sudden the search engine has revealed it latest doodle. As you hover your cursor to the doodle, it says “170th Birthday of Pyotr Iliyich Tchaikovsky- Doodle produced with San Francisco Ballet”.

According to his wiki page, Tchaikovsky 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.

The impact of Tchaikovsky’s own works, especially in ballet, should not be underestimated; his mastery of danseuse (melodies which match physical movements perfectly), along with vivid orchestration, effective themes and continuity of thought were unprecedented in the genre, setting new standards for the role of music in classical ballet. Noel Goodwin characterized Swan Lake as “one of [ballet’s] enduring masterworks” and The Sleeping Beauty as “the supreme example of 19th century classical ballet,” while Wiley called the latter work “powerful, diverse and rhythmically complex.”
