Who is that on the left?

Below is the original YouTube video. Some wonderful pictures of the great composer, and IMO, the opening movement of the D minor Suite is one of T's greatest moments. After a few tokes, all my friends fall into line, they go CRAZY!

Just how it should be:

I can't identify the person. But I can identify good music wink.

Loved Tchaikovsky's symphonies, especially the b minor, from the first listen. Not surprised that this suite moves you!


Beethoven - Op.49 No.1 (sonata 19)
Czerny - Op.299 Nos. 5,7 (School of Velocity)
Liszt - S.172 No.2 (Consolation No.2)

Dream piece:
Rachmaninoff - Sonata 2, movement 2 in E minor
