Scriabin's "Black Mass" Sonata No. 9. Op. 68 by Nataliya Medvedovskaya
28 Mar 2015
Mysteriously mercurial and powerfully passionate interpretation of Scriabin's great "Black Mass" Sonata No. 9, Op. 68 at Bechstein Piano Center, New York, NY, March 31, 2011. From the soft chromatic beginning, Nataliya Medvedovskaya (aka Natasha Meadow) cajoles and seduces the listener with a clarity of motivic development, shifting textures, poly-rhythms, and alluring harmonic shapes, step by step into a brewing witchcraft of poisonous dread and fiery, cacophonous descent into Hell itself. The end is aggressive and at the same time terrifyingly beautiful. This complex and very demanding work of Scriabin is often described as more visionary and radical than that of many other composers before or after.
