    That's over 11 hours of music in a genre that wasn't one of Tchaikovsky's strongest. However, I assume that dedicated Tchaikovsky enthusiasts will justifiably need this set.

    There's a lot of Lisitsa on YouTube, which she self-produced and finally resulted in her commercial concertizing career taking off. You should check her out there to get a feeling for her style.

    She has had some difficulties in the US and Canada for her views on Ukraine (she was born in Kiev). She is a partisan of the pro-Russian separatists in the east of the country and hasn't been shy in advertising her opinions on the Internet.

    She even did The Nutcracker on piano, some parts are on her channel with nice scenery too!

    My grandfather is a Turkish-born Sephardi Jew and I fully recognize the Armenian holocaust, does that make me controversial? She's an awesome pianist, they don't want her, it's all their loss.
