    Thanks for these postings guys. I have neglected Scriabin for a long time and you've both got me wanting to get to know him better. I love the f sharp min. piano concerto and Prometheus and can also bluff my way through some of the piano preludes op.11. He definitely deserves more credit for his uniqueness.
    So much music to listen to in so little a time.........

    I think everybody was guilty of that during the time, and to be forthright I think Scriabin more than made his impression as a unique composer with that symphony. That said, you have a very good point about it being perhaps the less mature of the set. Of course, the others are tremendous as well imo.

    I'm enjoying this comparison of the breaking point of Hermann's relationship with Hitchcock. Hitch wanted a more jazzy/modern cinema soundtrack and Hermann threw something hugely killer in his face. I get the feeling Hitchcock had his pride injured so much he lost his actual sense, certainly the cue after Hermann's...oh well, I'll let everyone else decide for themselves.



    You are a smart man, @mikeh-375! :)

    One of the most profound, complex, exciting, monumental pieces ever written. I know some might not like the operatic singing style but it's more tuneful as it's lieder. For me, it has and always will be my favourite piece. I have dozens other that are special to me but this work, and this recording specifically, have associations that go beyond just the music.

    Ditto on latest release by Com Truise. The guy has the '80's aesthetic absolutely nailed. I read that he also designs all his graphics - also spot on '80s aesthetic.

    I hardly listen to music at all. This might sound gayer than aids, but the only thing I listen to is the stuff you guys post. All my time in the car I spend listening to podcasts.
