According to the Wall Street Journal, the “challenge for contemporary artists taking on Mr. Scriabin’s works is no longer technical, but artistic - how to create a spectacle that manages to mesmerize an audience whose senses are assaulted from all sides on a daily basis”. Tonight through Saturday November 5, top New York-based pianist Eteri Andjaparidze and lighting designer Jennifer Tipton join forces to take on this challenge in a program entitled Spectral Scriabin, as part of Lincoln Center’s White Light Festival.
In Spectral Scriabin — to be performed November 3 through November 5 as part of the White Light Festival — Eteri Andjaparidze and Jennifer Tipton stage a performance of Alexander Scriabin’s work based on the composer’s ideas about the relationship between music and color.
This track is from a previous recording of Andjaparidze playing Scriabin.
