How many piano concerto did Tchaikovsky make?

Three. The most famous concert is the first one, in Bb minor, op. 23; the second is in G major, op. 44; the last one, op. 75, consists only in one movement, so it's thought that it's incomplete. It was based on sketches for a symphony in Eb Major which would have been his sixth, but which Tchaikovsky abandoned.

Which overture did Russian composer Tchaikovsky write?

The most famous overture is the 1812 overture, celebrating the defeat of Napoleon. Tschaikovsky also wrote other overtures, most notable the Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture, also the Manfred Overture. There are probable others which I cannot think of at the moment, but these are less famous and less interesting. My favorite i the Romeo and Juliet Overture.

The Manfred Overture was by Robert Schumann. Tchaikovsky wrote a four-movement program symphony titled Manfred.
