About 9th Sonata
Music would have been useless if it had been art aimed at pure aesthetic value. Art intended as a means to achieve a higher spiritual state of man. The world we live in and the transcendent world are intimately connected and form a unicum. The artist and in particular the musician (just like the officiant of an ancient sacred rite) would be the bridge that connects the world of human reality with the transcendental one, calling to life with his instrument the musical pieces, real creatures of the supernatural world, through the performance of the compositions themselves. Scriabin's pen, therefore, has increasingly written music guided by the precise intent of treating (if not evoking) this complex universe. It is well understood how this discourse can be
misunderstood if not easily ridiculed.
