Rarely heard in concert, Tchaikovsky’s gripping Manfred Symphony was inspired by Lord Byron’s poem regarding 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.
