I am so moved. What a genius. I can’t believe I can’t speak English so Americans could understand me. Reply (at Tchaikovsky not being a serious composer) "When one critic can become as big as Tchaikovsky I will continue the discussion" Bahahaha Reply 19:05 I think that there were perhaps 2 infatuations which inspired "Romeo and Juliet": with Eduard Sack and Desiree Artot. Interesting how he does not mention Artot, who's infatuation with Tchaikovsky quite inspired "Romeo". Reply von Meck was a girl Reply why couldn't Tchaikovsky marry his own "best friend" whom he wrote letters too. i mean as in von Meck Reply Too much spoken Russian spoils this documentary. Reply Subtitles would be very useful when the Russian people speak. It's only a suggestion! Hahaha! XD Reply It would be helpful if there were English subtitles for the non-English speakers Reply Gay mad Russian Reply This needs to be subtitled or taken down. I'm fascinated as someone newly become interested in classical music, but I'm also irritated in that I feel I am missing so much information from this particular video. Reply 24:52 well I ugh.. hmmm.. Reply Can't watch it. Half of it is in Russian without subtitles, and I'm just not that interested in Tchaikovsky. Reply 45:44 Nom nomm Reply P.S. The lack of subtitles is just more salt in an open wound. Who wants to hear what some dumb broad who drives a streetcar gives as her opinion, anyway? Reply To me, this portrait reveals nothing I did not already know, and confirmed my inclination never, ever to visit this ugly country with its absurd sounding language, and a plethora of overweight females and ill-kempt males. I would not trust this Temirkanov jerk two seconds with any other music. His beat is indecipherable, his reference to the score is nil, and this whole programs sets Russia where it belongs: in some foreign world on a foreign planet. Reply music has no languages is universal Reply According to Amazon, this dvd has Italian, English, German, Spanish and French subtitles.http://www.amazon.co.uk/Great-Composers-Tchaikovsky-DVD/dp/B000GKH2RS/ref=sr_1_1?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1433938494&sr=1-1&keywords=great+composers+tchaikovsky Reply No subtitles on the russian speaks? 🙁 Reply Tchaikovsky is not a great composer… Reply Shame there are no subtitles Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
