Event description
The Scriabin @ 150 conference marks this celebratory date as a chance to reflect on any aspect of the composer’s unique legacy.

About this event

2022 marks the 150th anniversary of Alexander Scriabin’s birth on 6th January 1872.

Few composers of western art music have provided as much fascination. Scriabin offered a unique blend of esoteric mysticism, ethereal pianism, progressive harmonic technique, philosophically-driven composition, colour-music experiments, and more. For 150 years he has stimulated lively scholarly debate and new musical experiences. The Scriabin @ 150 conference marks this celebratory date as a chance to reflect on any aspect of the composer’s unique legacy.

The conference will be held on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th September 2022 at Queen Anne’s School, Caversham, and will feature a keynote address from Professor Marina Frolova-Walker (Cambridge University), a piano recital from Anita D’Attillis, and other Scriabin-related events. The conference will focus on the following:

  • Scriabin’s cultural significance and legacy: influences and inspiration
  • Scriabin and performance practices
  • Implications of Scriabin’s works for music theory and analysis
  • Issues pertaining to mysticism or theosophy in Scriabin’s music
  • Discussion of Scriabin’s philosophical and poetical writings
  • Scriabin and Russo-European traditions
  • Scriabin’s artistic milieu
  • Scriabin’s reception in Russia and abroad
