All Mariss Jansons - Th reserved. Remember me on this computer. The memory of the lost Astarte, once passionately loved, gnaws his heart and there is neither limit nor end to Manfred's despair. The musical embodiment of this program note is presented in five extensive musical slabs spaced out by four silences.
A brooding first theme, briefly unharmonized, builds to music both spacious and monolithic. A second theme leads to a second Mariss Jansons - Th slab, this time pushing forward with the loudest climax Tchaikovsky ever wrote.
The music in the third slab seems calmer, Manfred Symphony the fourth slab marks the appearance of Astarte. The fifth slab culminates in a frantic climax and a series of abrupt, final chords.
The Alpine fairy appears before Manfred in the rainbow from the spray of a waterfall. Tchaikovsky's efforts in exploring fresh possibilities in scoring allowed him to present his music with new colors and more refined contrasts.
In this scherzo, it seems as though the orchestration creates the music, as though Tchaikovsky has thought directly in Summer Breeze - Seals & Crofts - Summer Breeze and textures, making Mariss Jansons - Th the primary focus. Put simply, there is no Mariss Jansons - Th and little definition of any harmonic base, creating a world alluring, fragile and magical.
The point becomes clear when an actual and lyrical tune enters the central section of the movement. A picture of Mariss Jansons - Th bare, simple, free life of the mountain folk. This pastorale opens with a sicilianathen the three-note call of a hunter. The opening theme returns. We hear a brief and lively peasant dance, then an agitated outburst, before the opening theme returns. The opening pastoral theme eventually returns more spaciously and in a fuller, more decorative scoring.
The hunter sounds his horn; the music fades. The subterranean palace of Arimanes. Infernal orgy. Appearance of Manfred in the middle of the bacchanal. Evocation and appearance of the shade of Astarte. He is pardoned. Death of Manfred. Many critics consider the finale to be fatally flawed, but the problem lies less with music than with the program. Up to this point Tchaikovsky has done well at reconciling the extramusical requirements for each movement with the music itself. Now, however, the program takes over, beginning with a fuguewhich is by its nature academic They Cant Take That Away From Me (1937) - Lynne Jackson & Mike Palter - Rememberings undramatic, to depict the horde's discovery of Manfred within their midst.
Several features make Manfred unique among Tchaikovsky's works. It is the only programmatic work he wrote in more than one movement.
The first two movements do not recapitulate their Manfred Symphony sections. The entire work is not only extremely long, playing up to and sometimes over an hour, but it is designed with the utmost spaciousness in mind. There is nothing else in Tchaikovsky's works that captures the long-breathed deliberation of the third movement or the practically verbatim recapitulation of the widely variegated opening section of the second movement following the equally huge middle section.
At least one critic has suggested that, in its heroic but perfectly judged dimensions, Manfred resembles Richard Strauss 's later tone poem A Hero's Life. Musicologist John Warrack Oslo Filharmoniske Orkester that, of all Tchaikovsky's major neglected works, Manfred may be the one which least deserves this fate.
