Pyotr Ilyich’s life journey consists of more than 150 points. From a happy childhood in Votkinsk and youth in St. Petersburg to “Souvenir de Florence” and a triumph at the opening of Carnegie Hall in New York. The world map gives a sense of the composer’s personal and creative scope.
Moreover, an essential motif related to Tchaikovsky’s worldview is his search for home. Where could he find peace, what did his heart yearn for?
This and other questions are covered in the lecture “Geography of Tchaikovsky’s Life and Work. Selected Pages” by Tamara Skvirskaya, musicologist, Candidate of Sciences in Art History.
