Manfred Symphony

Inspired by Mozart, Richard Strauss’ Duet Concertino depicts an unlikely story of a bear (bassoon) falling in love with a princess (clarinet) performed by MPO principals Alexandar Lenkov and Gonzalo Esteban. Byron’s tale of Manfred, a Faustian nobleman tortured by guilt and the death of his beloved Astarte, is heard in two musical representations by Schumann in his overture and Tchaikovsky in his epic and programmatic symphony. Principal guest conductor of the Orchestra de la Suisse Romande, Kazuki Yamada conducts.
