The Russian ministry of culture has published the declared 2016 earnings of the top ten arts millionaires.
Valery Gergiev came top with 154.45 million rubles ($2.73 million).
Vladimir Spivakov was third with 76.14 million ($1.35m).
Yuri Temirkanov and Yuri Bashmet were the other musicians in the ten.
These declarations are not definitive. In a kleptocracy whose president hides his billions in Panama, it would be unrealistic to expect artists to maintain all of their assets in the motherland.
