Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (May 7, 1840 [O.S. April 25] – November 6, 1893 [O.S. October 25]) 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.

Born into a middle-class family, Tchaikovsky was educated towards a career as a civil servant, despite the musical precocity he had demonstrated. Against the wishes of his family, he chose to pursue a musical career, and, in 1862, he entered the Saint Petersburg Conservatory, graduating in 1865. The formal, Western-oriented training he received set him apart from the contemporary nationalistic movement embodied by the influential group of young Russian composers known as The Five, with whom Tchaikovsky sustained a mixed professional relationship throughout his career.

Pi Day – Google Doodle

Pi Approximation Day is celebrated on July 22 due to popular approximation of pi of Archimedes’ 22 / 7. However, this can be misleading, since all the dates cited are days “approach” (as pi is an irrational number) and 22 / 7 is actually a little closer than 3.14 pi. Typically, March 14 is more popular in countries that use the format month / day (22 / 7 is a possible date in this format), and July 22 is more popular in countries using the format day / month (from 3 / 14 and 31 / 4 dates are impossible in this format).
