Homage to Tchaikovsky was written for a commission from the Santa Barbara Symphony and its conductor, Gisele Ben-Dor. The work was conceived for a series of concerts whose theme was "Mostly Tchaikovsky." While inspiration is taken from various Tchaikovsky works, the overall effect is a work by a 21st Century composer, rather than a "suite" of Tchaikovsky pieces. Homage to Tchaikovsky uses the same orchestration of the 3rd Symphony and 1st Piano Concerto, a standard orchestra with woodwinds, brass, timpani and strings.
