New recordings for Limenmusic Web Tv

Saturday, December 4th 2010, the renowed japanese pianist Aki Kuroda, has recorded in Limenmusic’s studio a concert for the Web Tv.

In homage to the Russian composer and pianist Alexander Scriabin, she performed for us:

Scriabin – Sonata for piano n.4 Op. 30 (1903)
Scriabin – Sonata for piano n.9 Op. 68 “Black Mass” (1912-1913)

The earliest pieces composed by Scriabin are written for the piano, and are influenced by one of the greatest composers for piano of all time, Frédéric Chopin. His music gradually evolved over the years, creating very original works, that employing very inusual harmonies and texture. The development of Scriabin’s style can be followed in his twelve piano sonatas: the earliest are composed in a fairly conventional late-Romantic idiom and show the influence of Chopin and, sometimes, of Franz Liszt; but the later ones move into original territories, infact  the last five being written without indication of tone.

Waiting for broadcasting of the concert on the Web Tv, you can listen to Aki Kuroda on Limenmusic.
