Photography contest “Tchaikovsky walks around the globe”

Contest dedicated to the 180-th anniversary of P.I.Tchaikovsky


“Our love for Tchaikovsky, for his beautiful music is being passed from century to century, from generation to generation, and this means its immortality,” D. Shostakovich wrote.

The name of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky stands out among the composers whose music is most often heard all over the world. He created a musical language that was associated with everyday life of his time. His music is clear and understandable, it moves people’s hearts, stirs their souls, disturbs feelings and thoughts. It has gained worldwide recognition.
