Pyotr Il’yich Tchaikovsky (May 7, 1840 to November 6, 1893) is the most famous Russian composer of the Romantic Period (1825-1900).  Surprisingly, Tchaikovsky was not included in the “Russian Five” - Modest Musorgsky (1839-1881), Alexander Borodin (1833-1887), Mily Balakirev (1837-1910), César Cui (1835-1918) and Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov (1844-1908) because his musical training was felt to be too influenced by German music.  

Tchaikovsky is best known for his 6 symphonies and 3 ballets - Swan Lake (Op. 20, 1875-6), Sleeping Beauty (Op. 66, 1888-9) and The Nutcracker (Op. 71, 1891-2).   

In this arrangement of the Suite from Swan Lake, to make for “more friendly” key signatures, No. 1, 2, 3 & 5 have been transposed up a semi tone and No. 4 & 6 down a semi tone.  In addition, the first 17 bars of No. 4 (a Harp Cadenza) have been omitted.
