Jonathan Powell is renowned for his interpretations of 19th and 20-century piano repertoire, as shown by his recent deutscher Schallplattenpreis for Sorabji’s Sequentia Cyclica, which was recorded at the JdP. Tonight’s concert is a unique opportunity to hear all ten Scriabin sonatas in one evening, played by one of the acknowledged great interpreters of this repertoire. Hearing them in chronological order presents a fascinating perspective on Scriabin’s development from a composer strongly influenced by Chopin to the mystic modernist at the forefront of fin-de-siècle experimentation with colour and harmony.
Preceded by a pre-concert talk on Scriabin’s sonatas by Prof. Marina Frolova-Walker (Cambridge University) at 5.30pm.
