Tchaikovsky Family Concert

We’re in the year 1893, a few months after Tchaikovsky’s passing, while baronnes von Meck is in the very twilight of her years. She sits in her rocking chair and is overwhelmed with memories of her best friend, the lover she never met. Carried away she starts listening to the opening of his beloved Serenade for Strings…

Based on the extensive correspondence between Tchaikovsky and von Meck, this program combines theater, music and audience interaction.
