*Please note the change of artist from originally advertised.

Pushkin’s semi-autobiographical poem The Miserly Knight, which tells of a stifled son pushing against his selfish father, drew from Rachmaninoff some of his richest, most atmospheric and emotionally fascinating music. Underneath the opera’s five highly characterised voices is a dark, surging and obsessive orchestra whose music seems to spring directly from Pushkin’s words. Before Rachmaninoff’s brooding Wagnerian prelude, Vladimir Jurowski conducts excerpts from the opening opera of Wagner’s Ring Cycle, Das Rheingold, the first realisation of those glistening, churning structures that make the Ring’s music so magical.

In co-operation with the Serge Rachmaninoff Foundation.
