- Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky - 1,648 words
Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky Tchaikovsky is not only one of the corner stones of Russian musical culture and world music. It's at the same time creative and technical encyclopedia to which every Russian has reference in the course of his own work (Cross and Ewen, 1025), said Dimitri Shostakovich. Peter Iltich Tchaikovsky is considered one of the best composers of all time. In this paper you will see how Tchaikovsky's life was difficult and memorable. Peter Tchaikovsky was born in Votinsk, in the district of Viatka, Russia on May 1, 1840. His father, Lieutenant colonel Ilya Petrovich Tchaikovsky (a well-to-do engineer who was the principle inspector of Government Mines and Metallurgical works), an ...

- As The First Shots Of The Great War Wwi Echoed Throughout The World, Many Questions Were Laid Upon Humanity Yet The Main Ques - 928 words
As the first shots of the Great War (WWI) echoed throughout the world, many questions were laid upon humanity. Yet the main question that lingers in our minds today "was World War I inevitable?" A question which has many sides about the War to End All Wars". Though in my opinion, if certain encumbrances were avoided, the start of the first savage war in the 20th century could have been eluded. The spark of the Great War was the assassination of the Archduke Francis Ferdinand, heir to the throne of Austria-Hungary, and his wife by a Serbian nationalist on June 28, 1914, while traveling in a motorcade through Sarajevo. If that assassination had never taken place WWI would have never started. T ...

- Construction And Playing - 934 words
Construction and Playing The main parts of the violin are the front, also called the belly, top, or soundboard, usually made of well-seasoned spruce; the back, usually made of well-seasoned maple; and the ribs, neck, fingerboard, pegbox, scroll, bridge, tailpiece, and f-holes, or soundholes (see illustration). The front, back, and ribs are joined together to form a hollow sound box. The sound box contains the sound post, a thin, dowel-like stick of wood wedged inside underneath the right side of the bridge and connecting the front and back of the violin; and the bass-bar, a long strip of wood glued to the inside of the front under the left side of the bridge.

- Lenin And Stalin Ideology - 4,157 words
... ... " Compare and contrast the ideologies and the political and economic practice of Lenin and Stalin. Every state is based upon and driven by some ideology. Imperial Russia was based upon autocratic absolutism for over 400 years. Following the Bolshevik seizure of power in 1917, a new era dawned upon Russia. For the next 36 years she would be in the hands of two men that would attempt to apply a new, vastly different creed in ruling and transforming this country. Vladimir Ilich Lenin, as the leader of the Bolshevik party, ruled Russia from October 1917 till his death in January 1924. He was succeeded by Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin, who also ruled until his death in March 1953. Both men ...

- Lenins Revolution - 803 words
Lenin's Revolution At the start of the 20th century, the ruling Tsar of Russia had absolute power and his Government was corrupt, hence, the majority of the people were against him. Vladimir Ilich Lenin, the leader of the Bolsheviks Socialist Party wanted a revolution to overthrow the Government. Relative to these times, it was Lenin who directed the course of the oncoming Russian October Revolution. The outbreak of the unrest, in January 1905, found Lenin anxious to set down a novel strategy for revolution: the need for the proletariat (the working class) to win hegemony in the democratic revolution. He flatly declared to both major political parties of the time (the Bolsheviks and Menshevi ...

- Russian Revolutions Of 1917 - 1,114 words
Russian Revolutions of 1917 Russian Revolutions of 1917 The abdication of Emperor Nicholas II in March 1917, in conjunction with the establishment of a provisional government based on Western principles of constitutional liberalism, and the seizure of power by the Bolsheviks in November, are the political focal points of the Russian Revolutions of 1917. The events of that momentous year must also be viewed more broadly, however: as an explosion of social tensions associated with rapid industrialization; as a crisis of political modernization, in terms of the strains placed on traditional institutions by the demands of Westernization and of World War I; and as a social upheaval in the broades ...

- The First World War Had Many Causes The Historians Probably Have Not - 1,425 words
... sent to war. The total war started when Germans used their first gas attack: Gassing was the start of total war, because it broke all limits, the social taboos, the gentleman's etiquette of other wars. Sometimes the shot would miss the mark and kill innocent civilians. Before the introduction of gas bombing, soldiers found it easier to overlook the fact that they were fighting on opposite sides of the field, because they had no personal motivation to fight. In 1916 there 139 British and French Divisions were fighting against 117 German Divisions. Two sides were facing each other across the "no man's land" of mud, shell holes and barbed wires. Sometimes the distance between two fighting p ...

- The Social And Political Influences Leading Up To The First World War - 1,218 words
The Social And Political Influences Leading Up To The First World War. Romanticism began in the closing decades of the Eighteenth Century. Influencing all spheres of life, pervading the populace of Europe and the first half of the Nineteenth Century with idealistic, yet unreal sentiment. Contradicting any romantic or idealistic belief were the uniform followers of rationalism and conservatism, descendents of Puritanism that arose in the Church of England during the early 17th Century. The German writer E. T. A. Hoffmann quoted in retrospect "infinite longing" was the essence of romanticism, if this definition is accepted, it may be said that it created in Europe, an illicit hunt for a "utopi ...

- The Soviet Socialist Leader - 465 words
The Soviet Socialist Leader Vladimir Ilich Ulyanov, more popularly known as Lenin, is arguably the greatest leader in Russian and Soviet Union History. Lenin inspired and led the Bolshevik (Communist) Revolution of 1917, and was the architect and first head of the recently dismantled United Soviet Socialist Republic. I would also argue that the Bolshevik Revolution is the most significant political event of the 20th century, and Lenin must for good or ill be regarded as the century's most significant political leader. Not only in the scholarly circles of the former Soviet Union but even among many non-Communist scholars, he has been regarded as both the greatest revolutionary leader and revo ...

- Vladimir Lenin And His Rise To Power - 1,212 words
Vladimir Lenin and his Rise to Power Eventually, empires and nations all collapse. The end can be brought about by many causes. Whether through becoming too large for their own good, being ruled by a series of out of touch men, falling behind technologically, having too many enemies, succumbing to civil war, or a combination: no country is safe. The Russia of 1910 was in a tremendously horrible situation. She had all of these problems. Russia would not have existed by 1920 were it not for Vladimir Ilich Lenin, the only man capable of saving the failing nation. Russia in 1910 was a very backwards country. Peasants who lived in absolute poverty made up the vast majority of Russias population ( ...
