A Russian pianist has played to an empty concert hall with the hope to support those in isolation during the coronavirus pandemic.

The event was backed by the Russian Ministry of Culture, seeing musician Denis Matsuev play out to empty seats during a live broadcast of his show at the Tchaikovsky Concert Hall, in Moscow, on Friday.

If you’re going to ruin a New Year's Eve performance by punk singer and performance artist Amanda Palmer by failing to switch your mobile phone to ‘silent’, you should understand there will be consequences.

In this case, the mobile phone belonged to a track-suited man, who was quickly given up by his fellow audience members. His punishment? To complete Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No.1 while Palmer quaffed her New Year's Eve champagne.

There was a consensus amongst biographers that Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky was homosexual.

His country, however, did not accept the fact that he was gay and has been shunning that declaration. The Russian Culture Minister Vladimir Medina stated in the newspaper saying that Tchaikovsky was indeed not gay, and there was no evidence to prove so.

A performance of Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1, as played by a young American in Moscow in 1958, has never been forgotten in the former Soviet Union.

The pianist, Van Cliburn, who died at the age of 78 on February 27 in Texas, was competing at the time in the first-ever International Tchaikovsky Competition.

A performance of Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1, as played by a young American in Moscow in 1958, has never been forgotten in the former Soviet Union.

The pianist, Van Cliburn, who died at the age of 78 on February 27 in Texas, was competing at the time in the first-ever International Tchaikovsky Competition.

Just 23 years old, he was a long-shot entry. But right from the start it became clear that despite the great divide between Soviet citizens and Americans, something special was happening.

By the time the competition was drawing to a close, Cliburn was the audience favorite, not just in Moscow but across the Soviet Union, as the event was broadcast on state radio. When the judges announced Cliburn had won, music lovers celebrated openly, despite the official chill in Soviet-U.S. relations.

The winner of the piano competition was Daniil Trifonov, a Russian.

Whether his Tchaikovsky First Piano Concerto is worthy to stand next to Van Cliburn's or Pletnev's, I'm not sure, but going on tour with Gergiev is the best place for him to find out whether he has got what it takes to walk in their footsteps.

Only time will tell if the Tchaikovsky really was saved in 2011, if the juries really did pick the right winners, in the careers the musicians succeed – or fail – to... See More
