Tomorrow, April 27th 2015 marks the 100th anniversary of the death of Russian composer Alexander Scriabin.
Scriabin is one of the composers most dear to me and I’m feeling extremely honored to perform tomorrow at the newly build concert hall of the Scriabin Museum. I could not have wished for a place more suiting for bringing my tribute to him, literally on soil where he lived his last years and wrote his latest masterworks.
“…Scriabin is the singing of a falling moon. Starlight in music. A flame’s movement. A burst of sunlight . The cry of soul to soul…A singing illumination of the air itself, in which he himself is captive child of the gods. A strong tenderness; a mighty invincible sweetness…All his music is light itself…” (Balmont, 1917)
