Boris Tchaikovsky

Boris Alexandrovich Tchaikovsky (10 September 1925 – 7 February 1996) was a Soviet composer, born in Moscow, whose works included Slavic rhapsody for large symphony orchestra (1951), Sonata in three movements for two pianos (1973) and Symphony with harp for large symphony orchestra (1993) along with much chamber music and film music. He is considered as part of the second generation of Russian composers, following in the steps of Tchaikovsky and especially Mussorgsky.

He was admired by Dmitri Shostakovich, with whom he studied, who (according to Per Skans in his notes for a recording) suggested in a letter of February 1, 1969 to Isaak Glikman, that "If Barshai's orchestra makes a guest appearance in Leningrad playing Vainberg's Tenth Symphony and Boris Tchaikovsky's Sinfonietta, you really have to hear them".

Of his larger-scale works several have been recorded, including the first (1947) and second (1967) of his four symphonies (which with its quotations and extreme instrument ranges does show the influence of Mahler and Shostakovich), the 1990 sixth string quartet, and the cello and piano sonata of 1957. Boris generally wrote in a tonal programmatic style, although he made brief forays into serialism.
