Who is that on the left?



Below is the original YouTube video. Some wonderful pictures of the great composer, and IMO, the opening movement of the D minor Suite is one of T's greatest moments. After a few tokes, all my friends fall into line, they go CRAZY!

Just how it should be:

I can't identify the person. But I can identify good music wink.

Loved Tchaikovsky's symphonies, especially the b minor, from the first listen. Not surprised that this suite moves you!
