When the inspiration was upon him, he could apply himself with superhuman intensity, as he did when composing the initial version of Boris Godunov. Sadly, Musorgsky deteriorated in his final years, suffering periods of inner turmoil, when his alcoholism would be out of control. Finally, unemployed and all but destitute, he died at age forty-two. His failure to complete his two remaining operas, Khovanshchina and Sorochintsy Fair, Brown concludes, is one of music's greatest tragedies."--Jacket

Tchaikovsky remembered by David Brown( Book )

20 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One hundred years after his death Tchaikovsky remains a controversial and enigmatic figure. His enormous popularity as a composer of ballets, symphonies and operas has never faded, yet the character of the man himself continues to conjure up paradoxes." "David Brown has drawn on a wide range of contemporary accounts of the man and his life, many of them never before translated into English. They provide a chronicle of his upbringing in Russia and the early years of his career, as well as impressions of his extensive European concert tours: sometimes they reveal sides to him that are rarely suspected. Tchaikovsky's private torments are sharply contrasted with the increasing success of his public life, while the memoirs of colleagues and pupils shed valuable light on the mysterious circumstances surrounding his death."--Jacket
