Music by Pyotr (Peter) Ilyich Tchaikovsky used in the Millennium episode Lamentation

 
An image related to Pyotr (Peter) Ilyich Tchaikovsky whose music was used in Millennium.

Pyotr (Peter) Ilyich Tchaikovsky, also transliterated Piotr Ilitsch Tschaikowski, Petr Ilich Tschaikowsky, Piotr Illyich Tchaikovsky, as well as many other versions, was a Russian composer of the Romantic era. He was born May 1840 and died 6 November 1893. Although not a member of the group of Russian composers usually known in English-speaking countries as 'The Five', his music has come to be known and loved for its distinctly Russian character as well as for its rich harmonies and stirring melodies. His works, however, were much more western than those of his Russian contemporaries as he effectively used international elements in addition to national folk melodies.

Details:

The 1812 Overture (full title: Festival Overture "The Year 1812", Op.49; French Ouverture Solonelle 1812) is an orchestral work by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky commemorating the unsuccessful French invasion into Russia, and the subsequent devastating withdrawal of Napoleon's Grande Armeacute;e, an event that marked 1812 as the major turning point of the Napoleonic Wars. The work is best known for the sequence of cannon fire, which is sometimes performed, especially at outside festivals, using real cannon. When performed indoors, orchestras may use computer generated cannon sounds or huge barrel drums. Although the composition has no historical connection with the US-UK War of 1812, it is often performed in the US alongside other patriotic music; it is a staple at Fourth of July celebrations.

Tchaikovsky composed 1812 Overture, Op. 49 in 1880. This piece was reluctantly written by Tchaikovsky to commemorate the Russian victory over Napoleon in the Napoleonic Wars. It is known for its traditional Russian themes (such as the old Tsarist National Anthem) as well as its famously triumphant and bombastic coda at the end which uses 16 cannon shots and a chorus of church bells. Despite its popularity, Tchaikovsky wrote that he "did not have his heart in it".

The overture debuted in the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour in Moscow on August 20, 1882.
