About 'None But The Lonely Heart'
Tchaikovsky, Pyotr Ilyich (biography)
May 7, 1840 , Votkinsk
November 6, 1893 , St. Petersburg
Popular Romantic composer of 6 symphones and some of the world' most performed ballets including Swan Lake, The Nutcracker and Sleeping Beauty.
|Info:||Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky composed a set of six romances for voice and piano, Op. 6, in late 1869; the last of these songs is the melancholy None but the Lonely Heart (Russian: Нет, только тот, кто знал, Net, tol'ko tot, kto znal), a setting of Lev Mei's poem The Harpist's Song, which in turn was translated from Goethe's Wilhelm Meister's Apprenticeship.|
Tchaikovsky dedicated this piece to Alina Khvostova. The song was premiered by Russian mezzo-soprano Yelizaveta Lavrovskaya in Moscow in 1870, following it with its St. Petersburg premiere the following year during an all-Tchaikovsky concert hosted by Nikolai Rubinstein; the latter was the first concert devoted entirely to Tchaikovsky's works.
