P. TCHAIKOVSKY WORLD TOUR
PROJECT BACKGROUND: XIX CENTURY
In 1888 P. Tchaikovsky has started his first tour along Europe as a conductor. He was met with admiration in Berlin, Prague, Paris.
May 1891 Tchaikovsky was the only invited composer from Europe for the opening of Carnegie Hall in New York where he conducted the New York Symphony orchestra.
Triumphant arrival of the composer to London took place in May 1893.
P. Tchaikovsky was awarded an honorary doctorate from Cambridge University in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Musical society of Cambridge University. His concerts were a great success in Cambridge and London.
