Quasi valse, Op 47

composer
1905

 
Quasi valse, Op 47, is a chromatic, caressing dance mood (‘all music must be communicable in dance’, Scriabin told Sabaneev); the bass here frequently moves by tritones, a procedure which was to grow on Scriabin as time passed and which gives the music’s progress an equivocal and immaterial quality.

from notes by Simon Nicholls © 2015

La Quasi valse op.47 baigne dans un climat de danse chromatique, caressante («toute musique doit pouvoir se communiquer par la danse», déclara Scriabine à Sabaneev), où la basse se meut souvent par tritons, un procédé appelé à gagner en importance chez Scriabine et qui confère à la progression musicale une équivoque, une immatérialité.

Quasi valse, op. 47, ist eine chromatische Komposition in einschmeichelnder Tanzstimmung („alle Musik muss tänzerisch ausdrückbar sein“, erklärte Skrjabin Sabanejew); der Bass bewegt sich hier häufig in übermäßigen Quarten, eine Technik, derer Skrjabin sich zunehmend bedienen sollte und die dem Verlauf der Musik eine mehrdeutige und immaterielle Eigenschaft verleiht.
