Chinese-American conductor Xian Zhang directs the 'Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi' in the Byronic epic that closes the season's Tchaikovsky symphony cycle. Written between Tchaikovsky's Fourth and Fifth Symphonies, Manfred is Russia's Harold in Italy, a work inspired by the programmatic symphonies of Berlioz and depicting the death of a tormented Faustian hero with supernatural gifts and a guilty secret.
