Tchaikovsky: Manfred Symphony / The Voyevoda
Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Vasily Petrenko

[ Naxos / CD ]

Release Date: Monday 1 December 2008

"Petrenko's Manfred emerges from the gothic greys of the opening wind chorale to vent his heartache in an emotive surge of string sound. But the real miracle of this first movement is the vision of idealised love emerging so tenderly… The palest clarinet against muted tremolando strings takes us directly to the heart of the matter, and Petrenko and his orchestra don't disappoint." Gramophone Award WINNER 2009: Orchestral

"This is top-quality sound and playing - at bargain price, too." BBC Music Magazine, November 2008 ****

"All praise to the budget label Naxos for signing a deal with the [RLPO] and their Russian wizard for a series of major recordings….[Tchaikovsky's Manfred Symphony] presents abundant evidence of the orchestra's new glory…Throughout, the orchestra's ensemble spirit is so tight that you could cut yourself on the music's edges. ... Watch out for more Petrenko magic on Naxos." The Times
