How were the dances that we dance created as well as the musical instruments that we play, and the brilliant architectural monuments? What was the source of inspiration for composers, sculptors, and artists? Which kings, politicians and saints were seriously engaged in the arts, enriching the treasury of world culture? The program "Shades of Art" tries to answer these and other similar questions.
The broadcast is dedicated to the history of the last Symphony (No. 6 in b minor) of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, the famous Russian composer, conductor, pedagogue, music critic, and author of more than 80 works. This symphony can be considered the composer's musical autobiography.
