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 which 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.
