In the former estate of Prince Alexey Golitsyn arrange music festivals in honor of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.

At ten years old Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky was sent to law school where pupils were prepared for the public service.

The first performance of the overture "The Storm" took place after the death of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky on 24th of February 1896 in Saint Petersburg during Third Russian Symphonic Concert.
