И расчищенные аллеи небольшого парка, и возрожденное заботливыми руками советских людей здание, разрушенное во время войны фашистскими варварами, — все говорило о том, с каким большим уважением, с какой любовью относится наш народ к великому культурному наследию прошлого.
Тысячи восторженных записей рабочих, колхозников, ученых, военных, артистов, студентов, тысячи взволнованных и благодарных слов, воздающих дань замечательному композитору, автору великих симфоний и любимых народом опер, находим мы в книгах отзывов посетителей Дома-музея П. И. Чайковского.
Но не только в этом дань любви великому композитору. Память о нем увековечена живыми делами. Часто тишину музея нарушают звонкие детские голоса. Это приходят сюда маленькие музыканты — питомцы клинской музыкальной школы, носящей имя Чайковского.
В этой школе создалась трогательная, полная глубокого значения традиция: каждую весну, по окончании учебного года, маленькие музыканты собираются в Доме-музее. П. И. Чайковского. В священных стенах небольшого дома они, юные наследники великого композитора, показывают свои успехи на трудном пути к музыкальному мастерству. И вот в строгой тишине музея раздаются глубокие, бархатные звуки виолончели, проникновенные звуки скрипки. Играет ученица по классу скрипки Нина Ковалева. Ей еще не удержать инструмента полного размера, ее скрипка — недомерок, но из-под смычка ее льются звуки неаполитанской песенки Чайковского.
