CD: Tchaikovsky: Manfred Symphony

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky Manfred (Symphony in four scenes after Byron’s dramatic poem), Op. 58

Vladimir Jurowski conductor
London Philharmonic Orchestra
Pieter Schoeman leader

Standing outside Tchaikovsky’s catalogue of symphonies, the ‘Manfred’ resides deservedly in the niche that its lack of number has provided. This is a symphony of extreme drama from a composer who never shied away from self-expression, Byron’s luscious and erotic subject matter proving the perfect material for music that is unique, intense and dazzling. Vladimir Jurowski delves into the very heart of the score in this live performance – throwing fresh but faithful light on a much-loved work.
