Skrjabin called his seventh sonata “White Mass;” drawing attention to the mystical basis that is stamped on all his late works; including this one. He attempts here to translate into sound his ideal of a “mystery” – a “Gesamtkunstwerk” of artistic; theological and philosophical ideas. Its aim; as stated in his own words; is the raising up of the human spirit. No longer is the formal scaffolding of the work based principally around that of sonata form; but around the idea of “evolutionary development from chaos to ecstasy”. Our edition is the first to be based on the autograph; which is today in a private collection in the USA.
