Among the miraculously beautiful things, I count the finale of the 1812 overture—in fact, the whole overture. Tchaikovsky's whole creation was maybe the most surprising and rich flowering of the beauty in melodiousness. Unsurpassed—not only since then—which it goes steadily without saying—but even before—pure touches of genius. Like Beethoven and Wagner only, Tchaikovsky is too me the example of musical genius of the highest rank. Too little known or tasted in the Occident (like Borodin, Korsakov, Prokofiev), he belongs, with the aforementioned, also with the equally bright Debussy, Fauré ,Schubert--the initiating and initial masters, the beginners of all beauty musical--to the realm where beauty found its definitive expression.

Weininger, Simmel, Nietzsche, Gracq, Proust, Wittgenstein, Stendhal, Baudelaire, Hoffmann, Schopenhauer, Gide, Valéry, Alain, Mann, G. Marcel, M. Sebastian (together with his whole generation —Holban, Eliade, Noica, Nae Ionescu, Vulcãnescu, EM Cioran, etc.; some of them left touching confessions), Lovinescu (the Ibsenian and modern aesthete and author of wonderful credos), Claudel, Cãlinescu (who wrote bizarrely few about the great composers), M. Caragiale (and his father), the philosopher Jankélévitch, etc., loved the musical creations, and deepened their enigmas, very dearly—and very selectively as well. (Other music buffs—K. Barth, Balthasar, the present Pope, the moralist and Italophile Butler—a Haendelian--,etc..)

As a person, Tchaikovsky is the most fascinating musical creator ever—not only enigmatic as a being, but also highly fascinating. He was a more—than—very interesting man and personality. His striking quality, his aura are never—seen—before.
