Monument to Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

Unveiled in 1954, this statue is located in front of Moscow’s State Conservatory that was named after the Great composer in 1940. This monument portraying Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky sitting and looking as if he had a sudden inspiration was created by Vera Mukhina. She is famous notably for the monumental sculpture of “Worker and Kolkhoz Woman” exhibited in the All-Russian Exhibition Centre. The monument is completed with a marble bench and a copper sheet symbolizing a music staff. The notes are extracts from the composer’s most famous works such as opera Eugene Onegin, and ballet Swan Lake.
