About 6th Sonata
Aggiornato il: 25 ago 2020
This composition is the first Sonata by Scriabin to abandon conventional tonality. It is also the first in a cycle of five Sonatas ending with the Tenth Opus 70. From the Sixth Sonata onwards Scriabin no longer uses tonalities but develops a personal system based on symbolic, mathematical and esoteric concepts. This piece together with the Ninth Sonata belongs to the "obscure" part of
Scriabin's theosophical vision. In both Sonatas the supreme and transcendent condition will not be reached through the Union between the Divine and the Soul of Man, the ultimate goal of the composer's theosophy.
