    YES, Alex1, my budd!!

    Tchaikovsky was GAY !!


    And his scores and scores of masterworks with such intense melodic lyricism were DEEPLY INFLUENCED by his deep gay passions in a very homophobic time in Czarist repressive RUSSIA !!

    AND for this VERY REASON:
    Tchaikovsky is a preeminent GAY ICON to many gay men, including me.


    Alex1, my budd, and ALL readers of this post:

    Tchaikovsky had at least SEVEN GAY LOVES and evidence has recently been uncovered by Soviet musicologists that he wrote multiple, intimate and
    lascivious GAY-LOVE LETTERS to his young nephew, Vladimir Lvovich Davidov.

    Again, it is felt by many that Tchaikovsky's deep homosexual yearnings and his inability to fully satisfy his extreme sexual CARNAL CRAVINGS for other MEN most likely led to his early death of 53 years old in 1893.

    Learn more about Tchaikovsky's deep homosexual desires and passions here, and READ his voluptuous gay love-letters to his young nephew:

    OMG, ArrowMan, this is, for me anyway, shocking and riveting information! I had no idea. You are performing a great service in memory of poor Pyotr by bringing all of this to the attention of those who may not know.

    I was just at the "rictornoton" link...reading about the gay Tchaikovsky brothers! OMG, the story just becomes more and more bizarre. It's wild that Pyotr (or Piotr) was having an affair with his teenage nephew, who was as good-looking as the composer. I appreciate that you have taken time to inform and educate us on the OTHER Tchaikovsky. There's so much to know.

    1734 is such a long time ago, and nobody composes music like this any more. Also, I think we can safely assume that Johann, unlike the tragic Pyotr, was NOT gay, as he had 20 children!

    Thank you, ArrowMan, for presenting us with something GOOD about Winter! I would much rather HEAR it than FEEL it.

    By the way, I just read the following (and thought of you and your Musical Corner):

    "Benny Goodman died of a heart attack while practicing Mozart...." David Markson

    Who knows, he might have lived a good deal longer if only he'd been practicing Vivaldi.

    Overture to

    "Tannhäuser"

    Richard Wagner
    composed in 1845 AD



    One of the most
    absolutely stunning masterworks
    in ALL of the vast orchestral repertoire


    As performed by
    the world renown
    ~~ Chicago Symphony Orchestra ~~
    Sir Georg Solti
    Conductor



    Fasten down
    and
    be prepared to
    SOAR
    to the highest mountains of all


    Of all the Solti performances
    I personally heard
    first-hand
    at Orchestra Hall
    in Chicago, Illinois
    while he was the
    Conductor of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra,
    this is one of his FINEST

    ArrowMan, you have adorned this introduction to Wagner and his Tannhauser with such attractive script in beautiful shades of blue on black. It is a fitting tribute to a genius and his masterpiece.

    Music the Great Bard

    ~~~ William Shakespeare ~~
    actually heard
    circa 1564 - 1616 AD






    The two British monarchs who reigned during
    Shakespeare's lifetime
    were Elizabeth I and James 1

    Hence, much of the music of Shakespeare's time
    is termed
    ELIZABETHAN
    as is the elegant work
    by
    William Byrd
    who is one of the most celebrated composers
    of the English Renaissance

    Whose composition can be heard on the above
    most splendid harpsichord recording

    I remember a high school teacher telling us that Shakespeare's works were not meant to be read; they were plays, meant to be watched. I've often wondered if that teacher was slightly full of shit. Everybody reads Shakespeare, but maybe that's because nobody wants to wait until the play comes to town. Anyway, I like the harpsichord, which is meant to be HEARD.

    Also, while we are on the subject of Shakespeare, what answer do YOU give to the question that's been batted around for centuries: Who REALLY wrote Shakespeare's plays? I think that is a puzzle almost as compelling as finding the true identity of "Jack the Ripper".
