Poem of Ecstasy

Poem of Ecstasy


Scriabin, Delius, Saint-Saëns & d'Indy

Benjamin Nabarro violin, Gemma Rosefield cello, Robert Max conductor 

Vincent d'Indy's atmospheric légende-symphonique is inspired by an epic German ballad and owes more to Wagner than his own Gallic roots. Delius too was a master of the expressive moment and his Double Concerto is a work of intense lyricsm.  Benjamin Nabarro (violin), praised for his concerto performances, and Gemma Rosefield (cello), described as 'a mesmerising musical treasure', also perform the attractive duo by SaintSaëns.  

Scriabin’s The Poem of Ecstasy, first heard in 1908, is diverse and fluid in its mood and lavish in its orchestration. Described by Henry Miller as 'like a bath of ice, cocaine and rainbows' it was broadcast in 1961 by the Soviet authorities to celebrate the launch of the first manned space craft to orbit the earth
