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.
