The Miserly Knight 2009


Vladimir Jurowski conducts Rachmaninov's dark setting of Alexander Pushkin's little tragedy with an outstanding performance from Sergei Leiferkus in the role written for the great Russian bass Fyodor Chaliapin. Rachmaninov's dramatically brooding score - beautifully recorded in an atmospheric surround sound - portrays the miser consumed by the power of his glinting gold, as it pushes him to his ultimate collapse.
