About 4th Sonata
The period in which Scriabin writes the Fourth Sonata determines a definitive change of direction in the musician's thought; a change that is reflected, of course, in the music. The composer approaches
Nietzschean thought and follows the teachings of a professor of Russian philosophy and president of the Russian Philosophical Society, Prince Trubeckoj. In the period prior to this composition, the composer freed himself from the teaching in the conservatory that was so burdensome for him and could finally devote himself completely to composition, which in reality became more and more the
concretization of his thought in the form of the art he knew. Scriabin's production flourished in a surprising way.
