  Music Room
Next to the Grand Hall is the modest Music Room, whose walls are painted with classical motifs. It was reserved for the musicians of the court orchestra which performed on such occasions as balls .or public dinners. An ingeniously constructed musicians' table with rising frieze panels incorporating folding racks against which music can be stood, and with a top veneered with a pictorial marquetry with emblems of music, has been preserved. Here, too, are kept two marble monuments by Ivan Martos, dedicated to the memory of Paul I's daughters, who died young, and two works of Mikhail Kozlovsky, an Apollo as Huntsman and Youth on a Rock, both belonging to his early period.
