One of Estonia's great stories is the fact that in his youth the famous Russian composer Pyotr Tchaikovsky spent summers in Haapsalu. Tchaikovsky not only wrote his opera "Vojevoda" during one of such summer holidays in Haapsalu, but also embedded part of an Estonian folk song in his 6th Symphony. In his honor there is a bench dedicated to this great Russian composer on the Haapsalu promenade. In addition, he wrote the cycle of piano pieces "Memories from Haapsalu", which we hope to present at each festival.
