Concert and Lecture: Tchaikovsky and the Russian Court at the Victoria and Albert Museum
- V&A (Victoria and Albert Museum) |
During the 1880s, Tchaikovsky became an established figure in the cultural life of St Petersburg, and gained the official seal of approval when he received the Order of St Vladimir from Tsar Alexander III. At this lecture, author and historian Rosamund Bartlett explores Tchaikovsky’s involvement with the imperial court, and the enthusiasm for his music shown by the tsar in the last decade of the composer’s life. The talk will be framed by performances of Tchaikovsky’s music by Manning Camerata, Britain’s most innovative chamber orchestra.
