Summary Tchaikovsky's music is widely known. He, too, "was widely loved, but his inner life was fraught with sufferings, confusions, and a deep vein of self-doubt. The drama of his emotional life is vividly reflected in his music, letters, and diaries, all of which play a major part in this intimate portrait-in-sound"--Container
