for december:

Scriabin | Sonata-Fantasy

a wondrous tapestry of late romantic high decadence. rounding out a year of music-making with one of my favorite pieces ever (Scriabin’s music was actually banned by the BBC during the 1930s for its perceived eroticism and disturbances ??)

Your self image is a comfort zone
Discard the mirror, be on your own.
Your self image is a handicap
Protecting you in bubble wrap.
"I am this" and "I am that"
"I am the one wrestled down on the mat."
"I am someone", "I am a label"
"My identity is what makes me able"
Who are you really, without your fable?
Without memory, without your story
Do you become undeserving of glory?

| Opus 2 Number 3‬

‪Deviant approaches to Beethoven; emphasis on temporal elasticity; harmonic dramatization; spaces for breathing and pause; attention to the 'surface' of the music; the sounds themselves. Performance praxis.‬
