Tchaikovsky: None But The Lonely Heart

Glorious playing…produced an ambiance that simply delights the fastidious ear.”

“Simply wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. This play has five star talent, five star singing, five star strings—no, make that ten star strings—and it is here to walk you through Tchaikovsky’s life.”

The passionate music. The double life. His own words.  An exquisite blend of music, theater, and dance.

In a strange relationship that lasted fourteen years and that was conducted exclusively through letters, Tchaikovsky and his patroness Nadezhda von Meck were united through the invincible power of a disembodied love in which they both found refuge. Plagued with doubts about the greatness of his music, tormented by the fear of discovery of his homosexuality, and trapped in a marriage to a woman who was eventually committed to an insane asylum, Tchaikovsky found in von Meck an “invisible angel”. ERC honors their unique relationship in a theatrical concert featuring Tchaikovsky’s Piano Trio in A minor and some of his most moving songs.
