Sam Marks in Tchaikovsky


2007 NR

Conductor Charles Hazlewood journeys to Russia in search of clues to uncover the heavily shrouded mysteries surrounding the life of enigmatic composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (played by Ed Stoppard). Through dramatic interpretation and personal insight, Hazlewood paints a portrait of a genius whose inner demons, paralyzing neurosis and closeted homosexuality combined to make Tchaikovsky one of music's most fascinating and troubled figures.
