Notes and Editorial Reviews

This new recording contains a selection of piano works by Alexandre Scriabin, the Russian Romantic/mystic, from the different stages of his creative life: from the Chopin-inspired early Etudes and monumental Fantasy Op. 28 to the 7th(“White Mass”) and 10th Piano Sonata, expressions of Scriabin’s philosophical ideas, dealing with his personal demons and quest for cosmic illumination. Serbian pianist Misha Dacic has a special affinity to Scriabin, “he knows how to make the piano sound not like a piano” (as Nikolai Sverev said about the young Scriabin). Dacic’ previous Liszt recording for Piano Classics (PCL0048) received glowing reviews: “What a Liszt player!, a formidable Lisztian reputation is completely born out of the stunning virtuosity Read more and passionate, fearless embrace of the composer’s idiom, (performance-10 Classicstoday.com), “Startling temperamental force and mastery” (Bryce Morrison in Gramophone). Misha Dacic is a regular guest at the prestigious Miami Piano Festival. He studied with Lazar Berman, and participated in the Progetto Martha Argerich in Lugano. Misha Dacic holds his present posts as piano professor at Mersin State Conservatory in Turkey, and at the University of Arts in Niš, Serbia. Read less
