Alexander Scrjabin: Piano Sonata No.8 Op.66 (Urtext)

Books | Piano

Catalogue No: HN354
Composer: Alexander Skrjabin
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
In his last years, Skryabin realized a noble and great idea. Inspired by his study of theosophical writings, he dreamed of joining music, poetry, mime, architecture, light, colour and even aromas to create a 'Gesamtkunstwerk', and thus elevate human beings to a higher level of consciousness. This 'Mysterium' was never completed, but his late piano sonatas – conceived as preliminary studies – enable us to see what moved Skryabin. He spent a particularly long time working on his eighth sonata and proofread it intensively; but later quite a few mistakes still found their way into it. Thanks to the autograph and the first edition, ambiguous passages have now been cleared up and corrected in our Urtext edition.
