I have in the last few days been listening a lot to classical music, and especially my favourite: Tchaikovsky. I love his small changes in tone, his songbirdlike quick notes, and just the sheer elegance of his works. My favourite is the Dance of the Little Swans from Swan Lake, but when it comes to a full work, I prefer the Nutcracker. I know my father, though Tchaikovsky is far from his favourite composer, prefers the Sleeping Beauty.
