This story tells of the great composer’s arrival in New York for the grand opening of Carnegie Hall in 1891.A surprise encounter with a young American girl, Jennie, reveals much about Tchaikovsky – his life in Russia, his love of music and his fears of conducting.This is a poignant story of the meeting of old world influences and new world experiences; a tale of contrast, courage and classical music.
