Description

Scriabin was one of the important figures of the renewal of music in turn-of-the-century Europe.

'Scriabin is not a composer who can be taken as our daily bread; rather he is an intoxicating liqueur, on which one can from time to time become drunk, a poetic drug, a fragile crystal.' (Sviatoslav Richter)
This deeply telling remark also sheds light on why the countless miniature masterpieces of this great composer are - unjustly - heard so rarely at concerts. Clearly, this music is hardly suitable a complete piano recital, for example.
But the question arises in selecting a programme for a recording too, for both the performer and listener: how many of these extremely dense pieces can be played, without any one cancelling out the effect of the others? All three blocks of this recording aim to provide an ideal daily dose for the listener, with around twenty-five minutes of listening.
In addition, within each block an attempt has been made to show the highly interesting development of Scriabin, in which a composer following the example of Chopin became one of the important figures of the renewal of music in turn-of-the-century Europe.
