I want to describe an episode from the history of Great Britain. It concerns the Roman conquest of Britain. In 55 B. C. a Roman army of 10 000 men crossed the Channel and invaded Britain. The Celts who inhabited Britain saw their ships approaching and rushed to attack the invaders in the sea as they were landing. The Celts made a great impression on the Romans, who saw them for the first time in the battle. On the occasion of the battle hair and moustaches were painted red and their legs and arms were painted blue. With loud shouts they attacked the Romans in chariots and on foot. The well-armed invincible Romans under one of the greatest generals of that time had to return to France. In the next year, 54 B. C, Caesar came to Britain again, this time with larger forces (25 000 men). The Celts fought bravely for their independence but they were not strong enough to drive the Romans off. The Romans who had better arms and armour and were much better trained defeated the Celts in several battles. This is how the Roman invasion of Britain started. This invasion lasted till the year of 407 A. D. As a result of the conquest signs of Roman civilization spread over Britain.

For the first time Tchaikovskyi visited England in 1861, as a travelling tourist. Twenty-seven years later, Tchailovskyi came to England again to begin his first foreign concert tour. The London concert at which the great composer conducted his Serenade for Strings and his Suite No. 3 was an important event in the musical life of England’s capital. In 1884 Tchaikovskyi wrote that he was working hard at his English. Later he mentioned that he had succeeded in reading Dickens in the original, which gave the novels a “fresh charm”. Some of Tchaikovskyi’s most important symphonic music is based on themes taken from the works of great English poets: Shakespeare’s “The Tempest”, “Romeo and Juliet”, “Hamlet” and Byron’s “Manfred”. In 1893, on the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Cambridge University Musical Society, Tchaikovskyi was elected Doctor of Music “Honoris causa”, together with the Norwegian composer Grieg, and the French composer Saint Saens.
