Scriabin: Poeme tragique Op.34
Scriabin occupies a place apart in the history of Russian music: refusing influences from the folkloric tradition, his evolution is constant and spectacular from the works influenced by Chopin and Liszt through to the tonal deconstruction of the final works. An extremely talented pianist, he found in his instrument a fertile terrain for exploration just as much for technical possibilities as for the expression of a philosophical or spiritual idea. This recording bears witness to this through the exhilarating and sensitive playing of Vadym Kholodenko.
