Philharmonia Orchestra : Ashkenazy conducts Tchaikovsky’s Manfred Symphony at the Royal Festival Hall – 19th April 2015

Owing  to the sad death of Lorin Maazel, this concert at the Royal Festival Hall will now be conducted by  the world renown Vladimir Ashkenazy.

Rarely heard in concert, Tchaikovsky’s  Manfred Symphony was inspired by Lord Byron’s poem and tells the story of the tale of a guilt-ridden mountain dweller who summons seven spirits in the vain hope they might help him forget the past.

The music’s surging power takes the listener on an unforgettable emotional journey, from inconsolable despair to supreme elation.
