Aleksander Scriabin (1872-1915)

Sonata no. 9, op. 68.

This sonata got nicknamed the ‘Black Mass Sonata’. Scriabin didn’t come up with this name himself, but he did approve it. The opening theme undergoes constant alteration, from the initial trill arpeggios (trillerarpeggio’s) to a grand shift in atmosphere. The dissonance persists and culminates in a grand march. Regarding performance technique, the pianist is demanded to showcase utmost skill. Recording technician was Kees van de Wiel.
