Daniil Trifonov announces the Extended Edition of Silver Age, featuring four additional works by Alexander Scriabin. The title of the album, Silver Age, recorded with Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Orchestra, recalls a time when Russia’s composers, poets, artists, dramatists, and star performers were among the most original anywhere in the world. The artistic audacity and brilliance of this turbulent era in the country’s history is illustrated with Daniil Trifonov’s choice of works by three of its most pioneering composers, Scriabin, Prokofiev, and Stravinsky.
“Scriabin,” he notes, “wished to combine all aesthetic experience in a single, mystical, musical vision; Stravinsky unified the arts through a radical re-interpretation of ballet; Prokofiev, meanwhile, embraced cinema as the most complete and modern synthesis of the senses.”
The digital extended version will be released 16 April 2021 and is available to pre-order now! Listen to the first pre-release track Scriabin: Eight Etudes, Op. 42 – V. in C Sharp Minor: Affannato now!
