James Macmillan For Zoe*
Rubinstein Cello Concerto No.2
Tchaikovsky Manfred Symphony
Vasily Petrenko conductor
Alban Gerhardt cello
Tormented by forbidden desires, Manfred takes to the mountains to battle his demons. Tchaikovsky knew exactly how he felt, and poured everything into 50 minutes (including a part for organ!) of the most personal music he ever wrote. Is this the greatest symphony you’ve never heard? Vasily Petrenko’s mad about it, and to set the scene he’s joined by the brilliant Alban Gerhardt to play the rarely heard, but gloriously tuneful cello concerto by Tchaikovsky’s friend, Anton Rubinstein.
*For Zoe is dedicated to the memory of former Royal Liverpool Philharonic Orchestra cor anglais player, Zoe Kitson
