Music by Pyotr (Peter) Ilyich Tchaikovsky used in the Millennium episode Midnight of the Century
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 dies 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.

Heard during the episode's score.
The Nutcracker, Op. 71, is a fairy-ballet in two acts, three tableaux, by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, composed in 1891-1892, and based on The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, a story by E. T. A. Hoffmann (1816).
In Western countries, this ballet has become among the most popular ballets performed, primarily around Christmas time.
A selection of eight of the more popular numbers from the ballet was made by the composer before the ballet's premiere, forming The Nutcracker Suite, Op. 71a, intended for concert performance. The suite became instantly popular; the complete ballet did not achieve its great popularity until around the mid-1960's.
