    That's right, a time when it was common for gay people to hide their real nature and even speak and write indirectly in private letters.

    I don't really see what you think you are gaining with this ludicrous denial, why does it mean so much to you that Tchaikovsky not be gay? What victory is gained by pretending it's not what it is? Tchaikovsky probably spent all his life avoiding people with your view.

    Enlighten me. Why would he not be avoiding people who insist he isn't what he was?

    I'd imagine what Tchaikovsky suffered under the heavy hand of intolerance of the late 19th century must have been very similar to what would be experienced by Russian homosexuals in the early years of the 21st century?

    because you made it all up, perhaps?

    We have a number of posts attacking members rather than arguing the case. They have been removed.

    This thread appears to have reached an impasse.

    The thread is now closed.
    Music begins where words leave off. Music expresses the inexpressible.
