Tchaikovsky: The Man Revealed

  • This event has passed.

John Suchet

Thursday 11th October 18:45 - 19:45 | Northwood House

In this exceptional talk John reveals the man behind the 1812 Overture, Swan Lake and The Nutcracker. The complex and contradictory character, the sadness and emotional turmoil Tchaikovsky suffered, the turbulent love life, the guilt and self doubt – all these fed into some of the best loved and most familiar music ever written. Sensitively told and filled with touching detail, John brings to life the most natural tunesmith who ever lived.
