Yarustovsky etc.) as well as P. I. Tchaikovsky’s chararcter pieces (including a facsimile edition of The Seasons), arias scores, romantic songs, gramophone recordings, audiovisual materials. The third section of the exhibition – “With Love to P. I. Tchaikovsky” – illustrates cultural life and musical events of the Udmurt Republic related to the name of the celebrated composer.
