Russian conductor leads the London Philharmonic Orchestra into a Tchaikovsky double bill. The Russian composer’s Violin Concerto is followed by the Manfred Symphony which takes its name from a tortured character in a poem by Byron who wanders the Alps stalked by an enigmatic guilt.
Tchaikovsky’s piece moves from of visions of life and death until Manfred’s ultimate demise.
This was the most extensive and challenging piece Tchaikovsky had written at the time of its premiere in 1886, Vasily Petrenko won a Gramophone Award for his powerful 2008 recording.
