Quote from: TheOverman on January 05, 2009, 08:29:28 PMFor Christmas I received Scriabin's Preludes, Vol. 1 with Evgeny Zarafiants on piano (Naxos). I thouroughly enjoyed them, and wished to check out more - so I borrowed a CD from my brother. It is a Decca two CD set of the 3 Symphonies & Le Poeme de l'extase conducted by Asheknazy. The orchestral pieces seem much more difficult for me to get a grasp of.Any suggestions? Perhaps I should check out the piano sonatas, not quite sure where to start.Thanks.

Quote from: mikkeljs on November 20, 2007, 04:44:56 AMI found a recording of Scriabins last unfinished Preperation for the final Mystery realized by Nemtin. And I read in the cd booklet, that Scriabin believed in some kind of higher level of existence, and that he had serious thoughts about, how his work should transform the human race of the performers and perhabs listeners. Do you believe in his idea?

Quote from: Bulldog on January 05, 2009, 10:25:40 PMHow about Scriabin playing his own music? It's on a Pierian disc #18 and includes piano performances by other historical pianists. Be advised that piano rolls are the medium (if that would trouble you). Regardless, this disc will give a very good picture of how Scriabin wanted his music played.
Quote from: jowcol on February 11, 2009, 02:08:52 AMI recall reading somewhere that the Scriabin piano rolls didn't quite capture his sound, because a lot of his technique involved use of the pedals, and the rolls didn't capture them. But I could be wrong-- so take it with a grain of salt....

Quote from: schweitzeralan on January 13, 2009, 09:38:59 AMThe Mysterium was an unfinished work, as Scriabin died before he concluded it. Some critics claim that the "Mysterium" is more Nemtin than Scriabin. I tend to disagree, and I wrote a brief review in Amazon.com. I think its a wonderful work. I won't get into details here; suffice to say that to me its a transcendental piece.
Quote from: schweitzeralan on May 28, 2009, 02:52:46 PMAgain I I write about "Mysterium." To me it makes little, if any difference that Nemptin finished what Scriabin conceived. It still remains for me a superb, magnifently conceived work. It's a personal assessment, to be sure. Even if the work were conceived by robots, Nemptin notwithstanding, it is an exceedingly, dramaric, significant orchestral work. I simply cannot fathom the lack of interest in the recording. But then again, A cacun son gout.
