Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840–1893) is widely considered the most popular Russian composer in history. His work includes symphonic music, ballets, operas, concertos and chamber music. Tchaikovsky was one of the first students at the Saint Petersburg Conservatory, where he received formal Western-oriented training. His compositional style incorporated developments of the Western European musical tradition while remaining integrally Russian.

Alexander Pushkin (1799–1837) occupies a place in Russian literature can only be compared to Shakespeare’s in the English canon. His famous novel in verse, Eugene Onegin, was adapted into an operatic libretto by Tchaikovsky, with help from a friend, the poet Konstantin Shilovsky. Some portions of the opera follow very closely Pushkin’s text, retaining much of his poetry.
