Ο Scriabin ονόμαζε το Ποίημα της Έκστασης “Τέταρτη Συμφωνία του”, παρά το γεγονός ότι δεν είναι χωρισμένο σε μέρη με τον παραδοσιακό τρόπο.
Το έργο, μυστικιστικών αποχρώσεων, είναι επηρεασμένο από την εντρύφηση του συνθέτη στη Μυστική Δοξασία της Μαντάμ Μπλαβάτκσι.
Το ακούμε από την Ορχήστρα του Κίροφ, διευθύνει ο …“απαγορευμένος” Valery Gergiev.

Scriabin called the Poem of Ecstasy his “Fourth Symphony”, despite the fact that it is not divided into parts in the traditional way.
The work, of mystical nuances, is influenced by the composer’s looking into Madame Blavatski’s Secret Doctrine.
We hear it from the Kirov Orchestra, conducted by the …”banned” Valery Gergiev.


As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ [why comments are closed here], so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the music !

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. • Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
