The pianists will tour across Australia in a complete performance of Scriabin’s ten Piano Sonatas- a rare event to be witnessed!

Alexander Scriabin’s piano sonatas, composed between 1892 to 1913, offer a fascinating evolution of their own. Unfolding over the course of Scriabin’s entire compositional life, they trace his development from disciple of Chopin to musical visionary, exploring his own unique sound world: mystical, heady, erotic and colourful. By exploring Scriabin’s synaesthesia, each performance will be enhanced by special lighting which will promise to be a deeply immersive and transformative experience.

All funds raised will cover costs such as publicity, travel expenses, piano tuning, venue hire, lighting and artist fees.

Confirmed concerts –

10 October, 2015: Port Fairy Spring Festival, Victoria.

14 November, 2015: Elder Hall, Adelaide, South Australia.
