Alexander Scriabin, classical music composer

Alexander Scriabin

Biography

Alexander Nikolayevich Scriabin (Russian: Александр Николаевич Скрябин)(6 January 1872 [O.S. 25 December 1871]  – 27 April [O.S. 14 April] 1915) was a Russian composer and pianist who initially developed a lyrical and idiosyncratic tonal language inspired by the music of Frédéric Chopin. Quite independent of the innovations of Arnold Schoenberg, Scriabin developed, as a sort of mysticism, an increasingly atonal musical system that presaged twelve-tone composition and other serial music. He may be considered to be the main Russian Symbolist composer.

Scriabin influenced composers like Sergei Prokofiev, Nikolai Roslavets and Igor Stravinsky, although Scriabin was reported to have disliked the music of both Prokofiev and Stravinsky.

Scriabin was one of the most innovative and most controversial of early modern composers. The Great Soviet Encyclopedia said of Scriabin that, "No composer has had more scorn heaped or greater love bestowed..." Leo Tolstoy once described Scriabin's music as "a sincere expression of genius."
