About the album

Unieke opname met preludes van de grote componist Scriabin
Dit is volume één van de tweedelige albumserie met de complete Preludes voor piano van Alexander Scriabin. Op dit album staan de vroegere Preludes van deze grote en unieke componist, werken die direct zijn beïnvloed door Chopin en Liszt maar die niettemin compleet in de eigen taal geschreven zijn. De bekende 24 Preludes Op. 11, bijvoorbeeld, zijn nauw gerelateerd aan de 24 Preludes van Chopin wat betreft lengte en hoofdstructuur.

Niet eerder was er een complete opname verschenen van deze Scriabin meesterwerken, dus dit album is meer dan welkom. Er staan maar liefst 42 Preludes op dit album, uitgevoerd door Paul Komen. Komen maakte zijn debuut op dertienjarige leeftijd met een radio-opname van werken van Bach en Scriabin. Daarna studeerde hij aan het Sweelinck conservatorium in Amsterdam. In 1981 maakte hij zijn Engelse debuut in de Wigmore Hall in Londen. In 1984 maakte hij zijn debuut in het Amsterdam Concertgebouw als solist bij het Radio Filharmonisch Orkest, gedirigeerd door Sergiu Comissiona.

Alexander Scriabin

Alexander Scriabin was a Russian composer and pianist. He began playing the piano at the age of five, but received his first lessons only at the age of eleven.

Alexander Scriabin was a Russian composer and pianist. He began playing the piano at the age of five, but received his first lessons only at the age of eleven. He could not play from sight, but studied the score and played the compositions by heart afterwards. He was also a gifted improviser.
During the rest of his live Scriabin made a living as a composer and concert pianist.He established contracts with publishers and also had a patron in his former student Margarita Morozova for some time. In addition, he annually won a money prize in the context of the Glinka-prize for new compositions that was set up by Beljajev.
Scriabin primarily wrote for solo piano and orchestra. His music progressively evolved over the course of his life, although the evolution was very rapid and especially brief when compared to most composers. His earliest piano pieces resemble those of Frédéric Chopin. The works from his middle and late period use very unusual harmonies and textures.
From 1904 till 1910 Scriabin lived in western Europe, primarily in Switzerland, but also in northern Italy, Paris and Brussels. After his return to Russia he found himself in the middle of a circle of admirers who were attracted to his exalted and mystic ideas. During the last years of his life he worked on a grandiose manifestation, a Gesamtkunstwerk, Mysterium, in which all arts and all people would have been united. He left only sketches of the prelude to this piece (L'action préalable) and large amounts of text.
