CLASSICAL OPUS no.59

Alexander Scriabin: “Etude no.12 in D sharp”

アレキサンダー・スクリャービン:「Dシャープでエチュード12」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 3 minutes

This study of extremes runs the gamut from catatonic to heroic.  Emotional, defiant and heterodox, the progression is marchlike and turbulent.  Coming from a harmonic innovator and supporter of multimedia shows this ‘clenched fist’ approach should not come as a surprise.  The juxtaposition of such intentions with Horowitz’s finesse always does.  And who else can calm the fury resonating through entire body of the instrument with one gentle stroke of a pinkie?

A REFLECTION

Once three pathways, broad and wide,

Met upon the plain;

Into foreign parts, three brothers

Set out from Ukraine.

And they left an aged mother,

And one left a wife,

One a sister, and the youngest

Left his chosen bride.

 

Taras Shevchenko “The three pathways”
