The move to pursue his music had consequences. Tchaikovsky went through financial hardships as well as emotional distress from his strict and relentless mentor Anton Rubinstein. He produced several works from 1866 to 1877 that did not do as well as he had hoped. Even "Swan Lake", which is now known worldwide, received bad reception. All the turmoil made Tchaikovsky obviously depressed however his musical spirit never strayed.
In 1878 to 1884 he would compose several masterpieces that would launch his successful career such as "The Maid of Orleans", "Mazeppa", and most notably "Eugene Onegin". "Eugene Onegin" is based on an epic poem by Alexander Pushkin which launched Tchaikovsky's most successful years.
Tchaikovsky has left behind several masterpieces which are still unrivaled today. Montblanc celebrates Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky and the 130th anniversary of the first performance of the "Eugene Onegin".
