The traditions of philanthropy have a long history in Russia. Members of the royal family and representatives of the upper classes considered it their duty to help the less affluent fellow citizens.

On donations from the upper world, orphanages, almshouses, hospitals, sewing workshops, folk canteens, shelters were opened, houses with free apartments were built. Thanks to the generosity of patrons, art galleries, libraries, and theaters appeared.
The revolution annulled not only wealthy citizens, but also charity. The noble tradition began to revive only during the years of perestroika. But this is only a drop in the ocean.

One of the heroes of the film, Julius Ivanovich Blok, was not only the owner of a bicycle store on the Kuznetsk bridge, but also an ardent fan of music. The first in Moscow to purchase Edison’s recently invented apparatus for recording and playing sounds - a phonograph. The archive of the recordings made on it contains the voices of famous writers and musicians, fragments of classical works performed by famous composers and pianists. In Serebrennikov’s film, stars play the stars: Evgeny Mironov - Tchaikovsky, Sergey Galanin - Rubinstein, Ksenia Rappoport - singer Lavrovskaya. The company, gathered at the Block, wants to fix the game of pianist Anton Rubinstein with a new device. It fails because of the reluctance of the famous musician to sit down to the instrument to the great joy of posterity. After all, his refusal made it possible to record the voices of Tchaikovsky, Rubinstein, director of the Moscow Conservatory Safonov and other participants in the creative company. A joking, awkward conversation left in eternity.
