Tchaikovskys abnormal personality
Once in his early teens when he was in school at
St. Petersburg and his mother started to drive to
another city, he had to be held back while she
got into the carriage, and the moment he was
free ran and tried to hold the wheels.

Tchaikovsky's strange two-sidedness
- intense emotionality in all personal matters
and headstrong impetuosity
- on the other hand, his candor and modesty, his
intelligent acceptance of criticism, and his
carefulness and good workmanship.

Early life studying law
- As a youth he reluctantly studied law, and
became a petty clerk in the Ministry of Justice
by 1860 age 20. - But by age 23, against his
family's wishes, he thrown himself into the study
of music at the St. Petersburg Conservatory.
