Centro Ruso de Ciencia y Cultura of Madrid offers, this afternoon at 19:00 hrs, a musical conference and presentation of the book about the life and work of Piotr Tchaikovsky, by musician and writer Luis Agius, on the occasion of the 140th anniversary of the creation of the set “The seasons”. Luis Agius will sign copies of his book Músicos ante el abismo (Musicians on the brink of ruin) at the end of the event.
“Músicos ante el Abismo” tells us about the exceptional and amazing circumstances, unknown in most of the cases, that were part of the particular “abyss” of each and every one of the great composers -Beethoven, Schumann, Chopin, Tchaikovsky, Sibelius, Mahler, Granados, Messiaen, among others-, corollary of a destiny as tragic as hopeful.
