Semyon Bychkov conducts the Czech Philharmonic in Tchaikovsky’s epic Manfred Symphony for Volume 2 of critically acclaimed his Tchaikovsky Project.

The Tchaikovsky Project is a multi-year project shedding new light on the great master’s major orchestral works. Each recording benefits from extensive preparation time, the best possible recording conditions and Bychkov’s in-depth research on these works.

“I’ve loved Tchaikovsky’s music ever since I can remember. Like all first loves this one never died.”
- Semyon Bychkov

“This symphony is an opera without words, and one of Tchaikovsky’s greatest operas at that.” - Semyon Bychkov

“A very fine performance, then, no question” - Gramophone

“[‘Grand’] is the word for these performances. Semyon Bychkov and the world-class Czech Philharmonic give Tchaikovsky space and depth, and a richness of sound and ambience, without missing any of the excitement at moments of high drama.” - Financial Times

“[This recording] is so impressive as to render the distinction between technique and imagination irrelevant ...” - New Yorker

“This beautiful new recording made in Prague by the Czech Philharmonic, under Russian conductor Semyon Bychkov, has everything going for it… For a modern version, this takes some beating.” - Daily Mail
