A Tchaikovskian Tribute to Mozart

Audio for this story from Performance Today is not available.

Russian composer Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky was particularly finicky about his music. He didn't care for Brahms and Handel, but he was crazy about Mozart, and wrote several different pieces in homage to him. The Buffalo Philharmonic plays Tchaikovsky's "Mozartiana."
