Opera Sergei Slonimsky "Virineya" was written in 1967 by request of Musical Theatre. KS Stanislavsky and VI Nemirovich-Danchenko. The opera tells the story of the dramatic events in the history of our country - the revolutionary upheavals of February 1917.
Fourth Symphony - a work by Tchaikovsky landmark in creative ways. Pyotr Ilyich worked on it for several months in 1877 after a difficult spiritual crisis caused by the extremely unfortunate marriage. Symphony was the result of all the preceding, and the composer was his "lyrical confession of the soul", in which he puts his experiences and thoughts about life, man's destiny, the relationship of the individual and the surrounding world.
