Dear people of ‘our’ beautiful Tchaikovsky website,
Tchaikovsky writes in 1893 in one of his letters: “So many deaths among
my old pals: Karlusha, both Shilovskys, Apukhtin!!”
In the section about Vladimir Shilovsky, his date of death is
mentioned: 30 June/6 July 1893 (that seems strange to me: isn’t the
difference between both calendars 12 days?).
There is no date mentioned in the section on his brother Konstantin. So
can you tell me when Konstantin Shilovsky died?
Looking forward to your reply,
thank you for your question. As far as I know Konstantin Shilovsky has
died 22 May 1893 and his brother Vladimir passed away on 24 July 1893. All
dates are in Old style.
