Notes and Editorial Reviews

The epic expansiveness of the Manfred Symphony suits Bychkov’s operatic tendencies perfectly. He clearly relishes the music’s moments of grandeur, over-the-top rhetoric and dramatic coups, and the Czech orchestra responds with playing of tremendous character.

– The Guardian (UK)

The combination of a seasoned operatic conductor with a headstrong, idiosyncratic orchestra proves a lip-smacking combination. The Czech Philharmonic plays with a very satisfying “crackle.
