The Birthday of Scriabin on January 6th 2021
Today, on January 6th 2021 we are celebrating the 149th birthday of the great Alexander Scriabin! There is a quote by Scriabin, made around 1900 when he was 28 years old:
“I don’t understand how it is possible to write “just music”: That’s so boring… Music only acquires meaning and significance when it is part of a bigger picture, of a holistic world view.”
This is one of the centerpieces of the significance and importance of the music of Scriabin. Everything in our lives is interconnected.
