Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR & RARE-------------"BELOVED FRIEND":  THE STORY OF TCHAIKOWSKY AND NADEJDA VON MECK by Catherine Drinker Bowen and Barbara Von Meck.

Von Meck was patroness to composer Peter I. Tchaikovsky. The two had an intense relationship, lived out completely in letters.

Tchaikovsky and von Meck never met - they agreed that they never would when their 13-year friendship began.

She was a wealthy widow and he, a struggling composer. Though they never met face-to-face, she poured her money into his career. He did not need to work on anything but his music, thanks to her help. She listened to his works, praised them and criticized them. Slowly, the unknown composer became one of the most famous musicians in the world.
