At the end of 1876, when his correspondence with Nadezhda von Meck started, Tchaikovsky had reached a turning-point in his career. He was becoming dissatisfied with his post at the Moscow Conservatoire of Music, where he taught harmony and composition. His compositions included the naïve and charming First Symphony; the brilliant Second Symphony, based to a substantial extent on folksongs; and the Third Symphony, in which the outer movements, lacking the initial impetus of folk intonations, are weak. mighty handful'; and Francesca da Rimini, which had recently been completed and was to delight Balakirev and his group. The First Piano Concerto had had enormous success in the United States, and the opera The Oprichnik was proving to be successful on the stage, though Tchaikovsky himself was dissatisfied with it.
For Tchaikovsky, his correspondence with Nadezhda von Meck was therapeutic; he often wrote to her when he was depressed - sometimes in despair - and the very act of putting pen to paper in the knowledge that she would be supportive wasenough to alleviate his condition, not to mention the fact that she eventually granted him a monthly allowance which gave him artistic 'freedom', as he wrote joyously when he had resigned from the Conservatoire. Not only giving a unique insight into Tchaikovs. Tchaikovsky dedicated his original and emotionally vibrant Fourth Symphony to his newly found correspondent Nadezhda von Meck in this way: 'To my best friend'. This correspondence started at the end of 1876, when Tchaikovsky was in need of funds.
collection of letters, from the significant years between 1876 and 1978, has been published before but not in such exemplary form: with tis excellent notes and introduction and synopsis of the letters this is a model of how to present correspondence and I congratulate all involved on their achievements. Edward Garden's Introduction provides an impressive, scholarly framework within which the reader may appreciate the succeeding correspondence. the end product reads not at all like a translation, but like the living interchange - building, in its own peculiar way, into the intense relationship between two people - that these letters represent.

Galina von Meck - daughter of Nadezhda von Meck's son Nikolay and Tchaikovsky's niece Anna - maintained that the rift was secretly healed. In September 1893, only weeks before Tchaikovsky's death, Anna was about to leave for Nice, where Nadezhda von Meck was dying, and Anna was travelling there to nurse her. Tchaikovsky asked her to beg his former friend for forgiveness for his own silence. Nadezhda von Meck's claim of bankruptcy was not entirely untrue. Along with his fortune, Karl von Meck had left a sizable amount of debt upon his death, and this debt proved to be far more extensive than his wife had previously known. Rumors of this debt started circulating publicly in the early 1880s. ISBN 0-413-45731-1 (pb). To My Best Friend: Correspondence Between Tchaikovsky and Nadezhda von Meck 1876–1878.

Tchaikovsky: The Final Years (1885–1893). When the correspondence between Pyotr Ilich Tchaikovsky and Nadezhda Filaretovna von Meck began, in December 1876, the bachelor of thirty-six was the most promising of Russian composers and the most highly regarded abroad; four months earlier, at Bayreuth for the first Ring of the Nibelung, he had been warmly-he thought d by Liszt. Shortly after returning from Germany, morbidly fearful of public exposure of his homosexuality, he wrote to his homosexual brother Modest: I should like to marry or enter into an open liaison with some woman so as to shut the mouths of assorted.
