Tchaikovsky: Manfred Symphony

Patricia Kopatchinskaja (violin)

Philharmonia Orchestra

Vladimir Ashkenazy (conductor)

The Philharmonia's Conductor Laureate leads the orchestra in a programme culminating in Tchaikovsky's Manfred Symphony, a programmatic piece based on the poem by Lord Byron. It's a love it or hate it piece: Toscanini considered it Tchaikovsky's greatest work, while Bernstein condemned it as 'trash'. The first half starts with Stravinsky's music for a projected Hollywood film about the Nazi invasion of Norway, which he recycled as a short suite. Young Moldovan violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja plays Stravinsky's Violin Concerto, a neoclassical piece from 1931.
