Deux préludes, Op 27

composer
1900

 
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’).

En 1900, Scriabine travaillait à sa Première Symphonie; les deux préludes de l’opus 27 datent de cette époque, et s’illustrent par des tempéraments complémentaires, entre affirmation héroïque et abandon luxuriant, comparables aux populaires Poèmes opus 32. Ils témoignent d’une richesse harmonique accrue qu’approfondiront encore plus les dix-neuf préludes composés en 1903 – une année cruciale où Scriabine abandonna l’enseignement et se consacra à la composition pour son instrument avec des œuvres comme les Etudes opus 42, la Sonate no4 et à sa Symphonie no3 («Le divin poème»).

Im Jahr 1900 arbeitete Skrjabin an seiner Ersten Sinfonie; die beiden Préludes op. 27 stammen aus dieser Zeit und offenbaren entsprechend den populären Poèmes op. 32 von der Stimmung her einerseits heroische Behauptung und andererseits herrliche Unbekümmertheit. Zunehmender harmonischer Abwechslungsreichtum macht sich bereits bemerkbar und wird 1903 mit nicht weniger als neunzehn Préludes einen Schritt weiter getrieben. In diesem Jahr gab Skrjabin seine Lehrtätigkeit auf und arbeitete an Klavierkompositionen wie den Etudes op. 42 und der Vierten Sonate sowie an der Dritten Sinfonie („Le divin Poème“).
