Product description

Product Description

This CD features the acclaimed Finnish pianist Olli Mustonen with piano works by Alexander Scriabin, which have become his signature pieces in recital. The virtuoso sets of Etudes and Preludes cover a wide range of late-Romantic expressions, from heroic to religious, ecstatic to melancholic. The Sonata No. 10 is regarded as one of Scriabins greatest works. The collection culminates with the pianistic tour-de-force of Vers la flamme, an astonishing piece famously championed by the late Vladimir Horowitz. Olli Mustonen has been hailed by The Sunday Times as, a living dream of pianism, having broken through an expressive barrier that other players do not know exists.

Review

Thrilling performances. *** --Guardian,22/03/12

Mustonen's Scriabin is highly searching and often improvisatory in feel, and one frequently senses the mind of a fellow-composer at work --Nicholas Salwey, International Record Review

Mustonen emphasises the music's stylistic antecedents, rather than looking forward to the expressive ambivalence of Scriabin's later music. You sense Chopin's Etudes continually sparking Scriabin's creative thought processes in Mustonen's masterly traversal of the Etudes Op. 8, and the influence of Chopin's Preludes on Scriabin's Preludes Opp. 12 and 16. --Julian Haylock, BBC Music Magazine
