Rachmaninov: The Miserly Knight / London Philharmonic Orchestra / Vladimir Jurowski [DVD]

Notes & Reviews:

"...Rachmaninov's straight setting of Pushkin's poetic tragedy could hardly be darker, its portrait of corrosive, futile avarice expressed in music of magnificently baleful grandeur, sounding distinctly Wagnerian in Jurowski's smoldering reading... The pivotal role of the Knight was written for Chaliapin, but if Sergei Leiferkus has a lighter, more baritonal voice, his characterization is surely just as searing, his huge monologue alternately vicious and pitiful..." ***** -BBC Music Magazine
