Deux poèmes, Op 71
Of the Deux poèmes, Op 71, also written in 1913, the first is marked Fantastique, posing ‘a tragic question’ (Sergei Pavchinsky), with swirling arpeggios, and with diminuendos which recall the dematerializing sounds of the Poème-nocturne. The second, En rêvant, avec une grande douceur, expresses with its arching, trilling phrases the upward striving of Scriabin’s world-view.
