Oh, how difficult it is to make anyone see and feel in music what we see and feel ourselves!

In 1885 Pyotr Tchaikovsky wrote to a friend, ‘These days I dream of settling in a village not far from Moscow where I can feel at home.’
Eventually Tchaikovsky settled in this perfect house "large, comfortable, out-of-town."
“I can’t imagine living anywhere else,” Tchaikovsky wrote about his house in 1885.
Tchaikovsky finalized in his house Iolanta, Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty, Piano Concert No. 3., 18 piano pieces, 6 romances, 6th Symphony (Pathétique).
Let us listen to your favorite Tchaikovsky's piece when you are in his house to enjoy his music while contemplating the exhibits.
The tour to Tchaikovsky Museum is available from Friday to Tuesday.
Clients re Tchaikovsky House-Museum Tour:
Hi, Alexander. We enjoyed a lot our tour. It was amazing to see where Tchaikovsky lived the last days of his life.
From a personal point of view I think it's best to devote the better part of the day. I think real fans of Tchaikovsky will want to spend at least several hours at the museum...My expectation was that I would only be visiting his home. I had no idea there was a dedicated museum on the site as well...
Below is a video Angel's signature tour, where Tchaikovsky's music was used.
This is another video our kids made for a popular charity campaign -Kids above flowers- in Russia with the Waltz of Flowers. Make sure to choose English, French, Spanish, Chinese or Arabic subtitles.
The garden was Tchaikovsky’s great love. It was like a forest, rather than an English-style garden. Tchaikovsky adored flowers, particularly lilies of the valley. After his death his brother Modest planted thousands of lilies of the valley around the garden, along with violets, forget-me-nots, and bluebells that Tchaikovsky admired. Nowadays the garden has many other varieties of flowers it had in Tchaikovsky's time: roses, begonias, gillyflowers, phloxes, and sweet tobacco. Therefore, spring and early summer is the best time to visit Tchaikovsky House Museum.
Tchaikovsky was attracted to the house by its quietness. The house-museum is surrounded by the wooded park and retained that silence.
Tchaikovsky's house, where Tchaikovsky spent his final year (1892-1893), displays belongings and furniture of Tchaikovsky, including his grand piano.
Thchaikovsky museum hosts regular concerts, but only winners of the annual International Tchaikovsky Competition (May or June) are allowed to play his piano.
In addition, on the anniversary of the composer's birth (May 7) and death (November 6) memorial concerts are held in the concert hall next to Tchaikovsky house.
The concerts of Svyatoslav Rikhter, Emil Gilels, Irina Arkhipova, Maria Bieshu were great events in the Tchaikovsky Museum concert life.
Pyotr Tchaikovsky lived on the second floor. The living room is the largest room in Tchaikovsky's House-Museum and there is a bookcase with his music books.
The composer's younger brother Modest turned the house into a museum a year after Tchaikovsky died. Tchaikovsky’s nephew Vladimir Davydov and servant Alexei Sofronov (who presented to Tchaikovsky museum personal belongings left to him according to the composer's will) helped the idea of Tchaikovsky Museum come true.
Since then Tchaikovsky Museum has been visited by millions passionate admirers of Tchaikovsky's music from around the world. Tchaikovsky house remains loved and alive much like his music. The visitors' book shows that trips to Tchaikovsky House-Museum for many of them were like a pilgrimage.
Bedrooms were austere in Tchaikovsky's house. However, it was in the bedroom that Tchaikovsky composed music. The garden was Tchaikovsky’s great love. Another passion of his was books - there are 2000 volumes at Tchaikovsky museum.
Christmas (or New Year) Tree is not a coincidence on this pictures. The plot of the Nutcracker unfolds at the New Year party…and the nearby Museum of Christmas Tree Toys has a special room about Tchaikovsky’s music.
