Three Preludes, Op 35
The three preludes of Op 35 come the closest to the manner of Scriabin’s middle set of Etudes, Op 42, particularly the swirling figures of No 1. Self-assertion, the ‘I am’ which opens the ‘Divine Poem’, is the ruling passion of No 2, but a rare and welcome touch of humour is brought by the experimental harmonic shifts of No 3.
