Vers la flamme (Poeme); Op. 72 by : Alexander Scriabin : Michael Schneidt : Valentina Rubcova
Scriabin's ideal of music as part of a synthesis of the arts; raising people to a higher level of consciousness; is particularly apparent in his late work “Vers la flamme” op. 72. The poème opens with static; rough chords; and then slowly but steadily rises from the depths to the bright light above. Diverse levels of sound in changing rhythms gradually move above one another and create a suction-like tension. At the close; tremolos and fanfares tower up to a blazing conflagration of orchestral intensity. The Scriabin expert Valentina Rubcova knowledgeably sheds light on this suggestive work in the accompanying texts to this Henle Urtext edition.
