about

Nadja (Nadezhda) Von Meck was a wealthy Russian business woman who started a correspondence by mail with Pyotr Tchaikovsky. She greatly admired his early compositions and upon learning that he was considering more lucrative professions, supported him financially for thirteen years so that he could devote himself full-time to composition. Nadja stipulated that they were never to meet in person, but they exchanged over 1,200 letters between 1877 and 1890. She became perhaps his most intimate confidant, and eventually went bankrupt herself. Without Nadja, Tchaikovsky’s name and music would likely have been forgotten. There would be no Swan Lake, or 1812 Overture, and there would be no Symphony Pathetique!

lyrics

Every day I’m going to the mailbox
On Sundays and holidays
Just as bloody likely
Midnight, daylight, online, and all the time
I’m waiting for a countess to notice me
I’m looking for your letter like Peter Tchaikovsky for Nadja
We all fantasize about the lottery
But I have this dream that you’re gonna sponsor me Oh Nadja, please!
I know that it seems pathatique
But that’s just how things feel when you don’t write to me Because with your help, I’ll need for no one else
Please don’t think it’s a crime to patronize
Oh Nadja!
If you never want to meet me, I understand completely I don’t want to fool around
I just want a pen pal
And I’ll share my secrets
while you see genius
cause on these pages nothing’s wasted
The ledger lines will take us higher
Through the wire is a kind of romance so please, Kiss me with your supple finance
Because the fortune you could offer me
Is more than common currency
And I know you’ll invest if you believe in me But how can that be true
If Nadja, I do not believe in you?

Every day I’m going to to mailbox
On Sundays and probably most people think I’m crazy For Nadja
