 Scriabin/ Chopin – IN THE MIRROR

2022 will be the year of the 150th anniversary of the birth of the Russian composer Alexander Scriabin, who was so much influenced by Chopin`s music.  I find the juxtaposition of some forms common to both very interesting: on the one hand the “salon musique” and folkloric element of the Polish genius, on the other the mystical and harmonic transfigurations of one of the most visionary characters of the early 1900s.

A.Scriabin: 2 Mazurkas Op. 40  

F. Chopin: 3 Mazurkas op. 50

A.Scriabin: Sonata n. 5 Op. 53

F. Liszt: Ballade n. 2 s. 171  

—-interval –   

F. Chopin: Sonata n. 3 Op. 58
