Tchaikovsky's Manfred Symphony

In Lord Byron's poem Manfred the titular character wanders the wilderness and villages of the Alps, tormented. Pulling at his soul are questions of existence, memories of past crimes, and longing for his lost love, Astarte. But Manfred is no ordinary wanderer. Having learned the occult sciences and the dark arts, he's capable of summoning spirits and visiting the underworld. When he finally finds the spirit of Astarte in the realm of the Evil King, she predicts the end of his suffering: death.

Given that Tchaikovsky was, on the whole, as happy-go-lucky as this poem, it's understandable that he identified so closely with Manfred—it's also understandable that he accepted the commission to create a symphony based upon the work. For it, he created the "Manfred theme," which repeats throughout and varies in tone and volume to portray the character's heartbreak and rage. Initially, Tchaikovsky considered the completed work one of his best. In the years that followed, though, he began to despise it and even considered destroying everything except the opening. Fortunately for audiences, he didn't. Today, they can witness the technical demands it makes on its players and immerse themselves in the rich drama that it delivers.
