Tchaikovsky World Tour, Gala Concert Vienna: The Return Tour 1892-2019

As part of the Tchaikovsky World Tour, the Moscow Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Vladimir Fedoseyev and in collaboration with the Tchaikovsky House Museum in Klin reconstructs a concert that should have taken place in Vienna in 1891 and would have been conducted by P.I. Tchaikovsky himself.

Vienna has always been the city of P.I. Tchaikovsky's dreams. Throughout his life, however, he never succeeded in performing in the concert halls of the capital. His only concert announced in 1891 was cancelled at short notice due to a chain of unfortunate circumstances. The aim is to compensate for this historical "injustice" and to reconstruct the concert of 1891, which did not take place, with the original Tchaikovsky program.

The concert program comprises works from the composer's planned performance in 1892 (Tchaikovsky's First Piano Concerto and Suite from the ballet Nutcracker), as well as arias from the operas of the composer’s musical idol — Mozart.

On December 6, 2019 this program will be also presented by the orchestra at the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory.

Pianist Dmitry Shishkin, II Prize laureate at the XVI International Tchaikovsky Competition and the mezzo-soprano, laureate of international competitions Vasilisa Berzhanskaya will take part in both concerts.
