‘Towards the Flame: Scriabin’s Mystical Piano Music’ Podcast

May 7, 2009

7 May – Towards the Flame: Scriabin’s Mystical Piano Music Podcast  

Xiayin Wang is establishing herself as one of the ‘must watch’ pianists of the young generation. With a new CD of the music of Alexander Scriabin, and a recital at Alice Tully Hall in New York, there is plenty to pay attention to. This Naxos Classical Music Spotlight podcast includes highlights from her new CD, and an interview with Ms. Wang.

8.570412 SCRIABIN Piano Music—Poemes, Waltzes, Dances

Numbered among the musical elect of her generation, the multi-award-winning Xiayin Wang presents a recital of piano music that virtually spans Scriabin’s career. The mysterious impressionism of Vers la flamme (Towards the Flame) builds to an exhilarating intensity that is matched by the two contrasting Poems. From his early Waltzes and Polonaise, with their echoes of Chopin, via the rhapsodic abandon of the Fantaisie, to the Two Dances, composed shortly before his death, these works chart an almost mystical trajectory through the composer’s life.
