Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (7 May 1840 [O.S. 25 April] - 6 November 1893 [O.S. 25 October]), often called Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky in English, was a Russian composer of the Romantic era. He wrote some of the most popular concert and theatrical music in the current classical repertoire, including the ballets Swan Lake, The Sleeping Beauty and The Nutcracker, the 1812 Overture, his First Piano Concerto, seven symphonies, and the opera Eugene Onegin.

The String Sextet in D Minor "Souvenir de Florence", Op. 70, is a string sextet scored for 2 violins, 2 violas, and 2 cellos was composed in 1890. Tchaikovsky dedicated the work to the St. Petersburg Chamber Music Society in response to his becoming an Honorary Member. The work, in the traditional four-movement form, was titled "Souvenir de Florence" because the composer began work on it while visiting Florence, Italy; translated from French, the title would be "Memory of Florence".

It is here performed in the version for String Orchestra by the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra conducted by Iona Brown.
