Product description

Product Description

The Poem of Ecstasy, Op.54 premiered in New York in 1907. The length of the work, inspired by Wagner's Tristan, may surprise the listener. In its definitive form, The Poem of Ecstasy is a combination of symphonic tone poem and symphony in one movement, constructed in a broad sonata form, a sort of monolith typical of all the works of Scriabin's last years.
The term ‘ecstasy’ must here be construed in its primary sensual meaning. There emanates from this poem an unbelievable harmonic richness. A great number of Scriabin's themes may be found here, as those of Languour or Will, illustrated by the trumpet, and serving as guide all along this work. Then comes Protest, in the menacing strains of the brass, before The Affirmation, flowering out into full tonal splendour. What follows underlines the settling of conflict, and the short epilogue witnesses the re-entry of the last theme, concluding the whole on an intense C major chord.
The Divine Poem, the title usually given to Alexander Scriabin's Third Symphony in C major, was written in 1903-1904 and premiered in Paris in 1905 under the baton of Arthur Nikisch. The score marks his break with the influence of Chopin. On the other hand, echoes of Wagner are constantly apparent in the instrumentation, the harmonic language, and the thematic workmanship. Scriabin employed the cyclic principle, inherited from César Franck and Franz Liszt. Each of the three linked parts of the score – Luttes (‘Struggles’), Volupté (‘Pleasure’) and Jeux Divins (‘Divine Games’) – contains the embryo of a theme that is developed during the following movement. In many ways, The Divine Poem is a revolutionary preface to The Poem of Ecstasy.
