The Seasons Reinvented is an exciting year-long project with lots of ways to get involved. Keep reading to see how your ideas could be part of the very first Keys Album, or our 2022 Calendar!
Listen to the pieces Tchaikovsky wrote about each month. You don't need to listen to all at once, so we're uploading a new one to You Tube each month.
January (By the Fireside)
March (Song of the Lark)
Get creative with your own month!
Here are the things we're looking for....
Use drawing, painting, collage or anything else you enjoy to create a piece of art which represents your chosen month. It could be pictures, or just colours and shapes. To enter, scan or take a photo of your work and upload it using the form below. We will choose some entries to feature on our calendar 2022!
Each of Tchaikovsky's months was published with a poem. Can you write a poem about your month? It could be about nature at different times of the year, the changes in the weather, or the festivals we celebrate. To enter, take a photo of your poem and upload it using the form below. The best writing will also be featured on the calendar!
Dance and music are very closely linked, so of course we would love to see some choreography of your own, danced to the music of one of Tchaikovsky's months! To enter, video your choreography and send via WeTransfer to the address below. Remember to fill out the entry form too! We will choose some choreography to add to our multi-media album, accessed by a QR code on the calendar.
Of course, to completely 'reinvent' The Seasons, we need to record a new album full of original pieces, one for each month! We are looking for new piano pieces which are based, like Tchaikovsky's, on a scene or idea of each month. To enter your piece, please video yourself playing your piece and send via WeTransfer to the address below. Remember to fill out the entry form too! The pieces for our album will be professionally recorded by our pianist Madalina Rusu and will also be accessed by a QR code on the calendar.
