“At the heart of everything is the love of life, work, and knowledge”.
Russian composer and pianist. One of the brightest personalities of Russian and world musical culture.
Scriabin sought to subordinate his creativity to the implementation of ambitious tasks that go beyond the limits of musical art. The passionate romantic dreamer lived a utopian idea of the possibility of appeal through music to all mankind for world transformation – the victory of man over the forces of evil and darkness.
Music of Alexander Scriabin is a wonderful page of the Silver Age of Russian culture. Classical harmony and clarity of thought, elegance and perfection of the shape of Scriabin’s works are combined with the renewal of the musical language. The music of Scriabin, lying in the background of a complex historical process, amazed with its spiritual enlightenment. The art of the composer had nothing to do with apathy. The flame of great faith in a human’s mind and nobility of deeds burned in his soul.
