Who is more highly regarded in Russia Tchaikovsky or Stravinsky? I suspect it is Tchaikovsky, because even here in Estonia we have a memorial in his honor and our most posh restaraunt in Tallinn is named after him. I honestly don't get it, his music is good, but ultimately it is just a refinement of early romanticism. Stravinsky on the other hand single-handedly defined a new era in music and set a framework for the next 100 years, plus his music was much more "russian" in it's essence, while Tchaikovsky belonged more to European tradition rather than Russian. Why ruskis aren't pushing him as their greatest composer?

England did not have much of a classical music tradition and since the US developed out of Anglo-Irish culture, it followed that we didn't have much either until Central and Eastern European immigration in the late 19th century became a thing.

There were no notable English composers in the nearly 200 years from Purcell to Elgar, other than Handel, who was a German emigre.

It's the old Mozart vs Beethoven dichotomy. Tchaikovsky was seen as being a purveyor of this kind of sugary, vapid fluff music composed for ballets and the aristocracy and lacked that primeval sense of struggle one found in Beethoven or in Stravinsky. The one major exception in his body of work was the 6th Symphony and its agonized death spiral.

For the longest time pianos and any more complex musical instrument had to be imported from Europe. A native piano-making industry in the US only began in the mid-19th century thanks to German immigrants. There wasn't much of any money for high art and a lot of churches still held onto the Puritan belief that music other than hymns was sinful.

Chase Allen

Sibelius was born on 8 December 1865 in Hämeenlinna in the Grand Duchy of Finland, an autonomous part of the Russian Empire. He was the son of the Swedish-speaking medical doctor Christian Gustaf Sibelius and Maria Charlotta Sibelius née Borg. The family name stems from the Sibbe estate in Eastern Uusimaa, which his paternal great-grandfather owned.[7] Sibelius's father died of typhoid in July 1868, leaving substantial debts. As a result, his mother—who was again pregnant—had to sell their property and move the family into the home of Katarina Borg, her widowed mother, who also lived in Hämeenlinna.[8] Sibelius was therefore brought up in a decidedly female environment, the only male influence coming from his uncle, Pehr Ferdinand Sibelius, who was interested in music, especially the violin. It was he who gave the boy a violin when he was ten years old and later encouraged him to maintain his interest in composition.[9][10] For Sibelius, Uncle Pehr not only took the place of a father but acted as a musical adviser.[11]

Not a lot of Russians could verbalize it (especially in english), unless they have a special education or spent some time meditating on this topic, but most of them can definitely feel it listening to Mussorgsky. You should try it out, you might pick it up, too.

Not in the slightest, unfortunately. We still have ballet and Saint Petersbourg is a destination point for many ballet artists around the world, but apart from that our culture, that was so bright not that long ago, now is in a huge decline. It's still alive not because of modern Russia, but in spite of it, tho in few generations it will be dead.
