Alexander Scriabin: Symphony No. 2, Op. 29 & Piano Concerto, Op. 20 AlbumPurchased

HIRES formats:

THE VISIONARY SCRIABIN Vasily Petrenko and Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra continue their Scriabin journey with the Piano Concerto and his Second Symphony. “It is fantastic to continue the recordings with Scriabin’s symphonic world,” says Petrenko, “Symphony No. 2 and the Piano Concerto are his most classic works.” When first performed, the symphony received a mixed reception and was called both Scriabin’s “Second Cacophony” and “the new bible.” We view it differently in retrospect, with greater appreciation for its dramatic effects and strong Wagnerian influences. The Piano Concerto was the very first work with orchestral instrumentation from Scriabin’s pen, after many compositions for solo piano. He was a distinguished concert pianist himself and was called “Russia’s Chopin” by one of his teachers. While Petrenko and Gerstein collaborated for the first time nearly fifteen years ago, last year’s recording of the piano concerto was the first meeting between the soloist and the orchestra. They met again recently to perform and record Symphony No. 5, “Prometheus”, for the third and last album of this Scriabin cycle. The first of the Scriabin releases from 2015 received glowing reviews the world over. Vasily Petrenko has been Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra’s Chief Conductor since the autumn of 2013, and in addition to conducting the core repertoire in the subscription series in Oslo Concert Hall, he has conducted the orchestra on concert tours in both Europe and Asia. Kirill Gerstein’s curiosity and versatility has led to an intense engagement with a wide range of repertoire and styles. His energetic and imaginative musical personality has taken him rapidly to the top of his profession. Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra was founded in 1919 and is an internationally acclaimed symphony orchestra with over 100 musicians and a history spanning nearly a century.
