Quatre préludes, Op 22

composer
1897

 
1897, the year of Scriabin’s marriage and of work on the Third Sonata, brought four more preludes, Op 22. The chromaticism of No 2 is remarkable and No 3 could be marked ‘A la Mazur’, with a characteristic rhythmic catch in its melodic figures.

1897, l’année où Scriabine convola en justes noces et entama sa Troisième Sonate, apporta quatre préludes supplémentaires réunis sous l’opus 22. Le chromatisme du no2 est remarquable et le no3 pourrait indiquer «A la Mazur» avec son trait rythmique caractéristique incorporé à la mélodie.

1897, das Jahr von Skrjabins Eheschließung und seiner Arbeit an der Dritten Sonate, zeitigte vier weitere Préludes, nämlich die von op. 22. Die Chromatik von Nr. 2 ist bemerkenswert, und Nr. 3 könnte wegen des typischen rhythmischen Hakens in den melodischen Figuren mit „à la mazur“ bezeichnet werden.
