"The Tchaikovsky Files" wins ECHO Klassik 2016

We are proud to announce that our DVD production The Tchaikosky Files by Ralf Pleger won the ECHO Klassik 2016 in the category “Music DVD/Blu-ray Recording (Documentary)”.

This documentary brings the Russian composer to the present - radically: Based on Tchaikovsky‘s diaries and letters, director Ralf Pleger discovers an entirely new side and sketches an entirely different profile of the man whose mind and talent brought us Swan Lake. The film focuses on what it meant for Tchaikovsky, a homosexual man, to have to live his life in a homophobic environment.

“It is incredible for “The Tchaikovsky Files – Confessions of a Composer” to be awarded with the ECHO Klassik! I am beyond excited! This important prize proves that Tchaikovsky’s biography is germane and ubiquitous; his story is not a distant memory but very much contemporary. I would like to express my gratitude to everyone who participated in this movie, with Gebrueder Beetz Filmproduktion and ZDF / Arte leading the way. But above all, I would like to thank Pyotr Tchaikovsky who I consider to be one of the best film composers of all times. ” – Ralph Pleger

Worldwide TV distribution of The Tchaikovsky Files is also handled by EuroArts.
