In December, Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky stays at the Beau Rivage while working on his Fourth Symphony, which he describes in a letter to his brother Modest as “undoubtedly the best that I have written”. Our Junior Suite 106 is dedicated to his memory.
“I think, I dream, I read, I remember – in a word, I rest”
Peter Tchaikovsky, Christmas Day 1877
writing from the Hotel Londra Palace
(then called the Beau Rivage)
