In 2018, I visited the Museum-estate of P. I. Tchaikovsky in Votkinsk. This is the house where the composer was born and lived up to 8 years. Here he first heard the sound of music and touched the keys of the piano, donated by his mother. Children's impressions are always of great importance for the formation of man and have a huge impact on his work. The genius of Tchaikovsky began with a happy childhood, an atmosphere of love and mutual respect in the family. Tender love for his mother, who died when Peter was 14 years old, he carried through all the years of life.In my personal perception, the quintessence of Tchaikovsky's music is his piano Concerto No. 1. I see it in deep, dark blue with a touch of hot fire and cold light.. This Concert is like a whole life: the tragedy of the mother's death and the first piano that she gave to her little son, joyful hopes and bitter disappointments, the weakness of man and the strength of his spirit, a long gloomy winter when the soul freezes and almost dies — and a Sunny spring with the resurrection of nature and soul.
