Aleksandr Scriabin was one of the most unique and mysterious figures in the history of music amongst composers. The transformation that the composer underwent from his early works through to the late works composed throughout a condensed period of approximately only 30 years is mostly unparalleled and features dramatic changes in his harmonic language.

Celebrating the 150th anniversary of the composer's birth, Konstantin Shamray will take the audience on an aural voyage through the harmonic landscape of this fascinating and nuanced composer.
