Deux préludes, Op 27
composer
1900

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
In 1900 Scriabin was working on his First Symphony; the two preludes Op 27 date from this time, showing complementary moods of heroic assertion and luxuriant abandon similar to the popular Poèmes of Op 32. An increased harmonic richness is already noticeable, and this is taken a step further with no fewer than nineteen preludes in 1903 – a year when Scriabin abandoned teaching and worked on piano music which was to include the Etudes of Op 42 and the Fourth Sonata, and on the Third Symphony (the ‘Divine Poem’).
