Yuja Wang: Master Pianists at the Concertgebouw
About the EventClose
Discover the genius of Scriabin. Neglected for many years, the Russian composer's works are finally returning to the limelight, often championed by piano phenomenon, Yuja Wang.
Although lauded during his lifetime, Scriabin's fame did not live long beyond his death. Nonetheless, his influence over the Russian music of the 20th Century should not be underestimated. Scriabin's piano compositions span an extraordinary range, from Chopin-inspired Preludes to a color-influenced atonal system of music developed completely independently of, and much more dissonant than, the systems espoused by the Second Viennese School.
