Sergey Yevtushenko's The Last Station
16-Jan-2010 - Varèse Sarabande has released the score for The Last Station. It's the story of the final year of Russian socialist writer Leo Tolstoy which comes to the screen with Christopher Plummer in the lead role. The central issue is the status of Tolstoy's will as regards the custody of his literary estate. Long assumed to be the provenance of his wife, the Countess Sofya (Helen Mirren), it's now being claimed by Tolstoy's chief disciple, Chertkov (Paul Giamatti), as the rightful property of the Russian people. Very close, he believes, to getting the old man to sign away his life's work to the public domain, Chertkov engages the fastidious, worshipful young Valentin (James McAvoy) to become the writer's new assistant and Chertkov's spy, obliged to record and report everything said in the fraught household. The classically beautiful score by St. Petersberg composer Sergey Yevtushenko captures the majesty of the Russian landscape and the drama of Tolstoy’s life.
The score is available from, Amazon UK, Amazon France and Amazon Germany.
