The genre of the symphony played a major role throughout the creative life of Pyotr Tchaikovsky. He composed his 1st symphony at the age of 26, & his 6th & last symphony – the Pathйtique – in 1893, the year in which he died. Whereas his 3 last symphonies have remained an integral part of the concert repertoire, performances of his 1st 3 symphonies are still quite rare. Unfairly so, as they are unique individual works, artistic expressions of a high quality. Tchaikovsky defined the symphony as “the most lyrical of musical forms. After all, is it not meant to express that for which there are no words, but which forces itself out of the soul, impatiently waiting to be uttered?”. With these words, Tchaikovsky makes us aware of the special nature of his symphonies. Primarily, they provided him with a musical outlet for the elaboration of his emotions, his mental & spiritual processes.

Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Manfred is a hermaphrodite – at least, as far as the music is concerned. For although the work (dating from 1885) was indeed dubbed by its creator as a symphony, it still did not receive a number alongside Tchaikovsky’s further six contributions to the category. And thus it was – and has still to some extent remained – “draped” over a stool, as it were: isolated in Tchaikovsky’s oeuvre somewhere between the categories of the symphony and the symphonic poem. Nevertheless, Manfred is definitely based on a literary programme. And what a programme – the eponymous dramatic poem written by the “dark romantic” poet, Lord Byron. Tchaikovsky devoted himself to this and to its eponymous hero with zeal, and seemed to even somewhat transform himself into Manfred during the intensive period of work. After all, he was also suffering from inner torment.

Per Lilith, il protagonista di "Russian roulette", la fuga ad Amsterdam dopo una delusione d'amore è la porta di un inferno di tentazioni. Partito da Roma per dimenticare, cerca un lavoro in città, ma l'unica voce che gli dà ascolto è la droga, che giorno dopo giorno lo cattura e lo allontana sempre più dai pochi amici e dalle ancor più rare opportunità di salvarsi. Quando non basta la compagnia di droga e alcool, sono le donne a riempire i vuoti della sua vita, amanti e prostitute di cui non ricorda nemmeno il nome. Gli unici nomi che conserva sono quelli dei suoi nonni, il cui ricordo, ora che sono anziani e morenti, è una scintilla nel cuore di Lilith, che ha disimparato ad amare gli altri e se stesso.
