The Secretive Correspondence Between Tchaikovsky And Countess Nadezhda von Meck

Countess von Meck (1831—1894) supported Tchaikovsky for 13 years, but they never met.

WRTI's upcoming broadcast of The Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert features Tchaikovsky’s 5th Symphony. As WRTI’s Susan Lewis reports, insights into the work have come from the composer’s correspondence with a secretive patron.

Listen on Sunday, July 28th, 2 to 4 pm. The program also includes music by Wagner and Christopher Rousee.
