Notes and Editorial Reviews

In 1909, Nikolay Golovanov became a student at the Moscow Conservatory. His professors in theory and composition were Ippolitov-Ivanov and Vassilenko. Here is what the future conductor wrote: "At that time I was fortunate enough to become acquainted with the two greatest Muscovites, Alexander Scriabin and Sergei Rachmaninoff. Both were at the peak of their fame and charm. Alexander Scriabin was an inspired performer of his works, a genuine poet of the piano. Delicate and inspired, he opened new, yet unknown worlds to me, and literally stunned me by the novelty in harmony, peculiar features of orchestra texture and the revelations of his symphonies, The Poem of Ecstasy and Prometheus, as well as by his sophisticated piano style." From this Read more time on the future conductor had a special feeling for and knowledge of Scriabin and the way his music should sound. At the time of his death in 1953, he was the acknowledged, greatest interpreter of Scriabin's orchestral music. Golovanov's entire series of recordings devoted to Scriabin will be coming out in future months from Boheme. Read less
