Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
(1840-1893), has the distinction of being the hardest composer to find in a catalogue.
Among the variations, his name is seen as Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Tschaikovsky, Chaikovsky,
and as listed in this piece, P von Tschaïkowsky. This quartet is the first of the three string quartets he wrote in four
years and this movement is the most loved.
Charles Henry Morse (1853–1927), a founder of the American Guild of Organists,
was a student of John Knowles Paine and George Elbridge Whiting and a graduate of the New England Conservatory of Music and Boston
University. He taught organ and piano at NEC and was director of the College of Music at Wellesley College. He served as
organist-choirmaster at Plymouth Church, Brooklyn, New York. Moderately easy.
