Scriabin Sonata no.5 in F#, Op.53


📖 "Scriabin first realised that universal art was a function of his own artistic personality during the composition of his Fifth Piano Sonata, which immediately followed Le Poème de l'extase. When he played this sonata for me [Boris de Schloezer] in Lausanne in the winter of 1908, he remarked that the music existed outside of him in images that could not be expressed verbally. He was not creating this music out of nothing, he declared, but rather he had removed a veil that obscured it, and this made it visible. His task was to render this inner image into sounds, without distortion; he liked to call this image a 'sounding body' possessing a color of its own. He observed it in his inner self and at the same time separate from him or, rather, above him. He sensed it with his entire self, not only through the medium of sense organs. In trying to describe this extraordinary state, he had, despite his skill in self-analysis, a great difficulty of expression. That is why he sometimes used different terms in referring to the same psychological state.
Motives and successions of chords were associated in Scriabin's consciousness with outside forces guiding his composition. When Scriabin worked on his thematic material, gradually building the sonorous edifice of the Fifth Piano Sonata, he sensed with different degrees of clarity the basic image that seemed to exist outside the framework of time. 'I am the translator,' he once blurted out, speaking about his Fifth Piano Sonata. During the process of its composition he felt as though he were projecting a three-dimensional body on a flat surface, stretching and flattening in time and space a prophetic vision that he experienced as an instant revelation, simplifying and at the same time impoverishing it. The integral vision that he perceived with his entire being, in which all the human sense participated, he reduced to a system of sounds, thus utilising only one sensory medium. He also said that in the apperception of this primary vision he did not feel that he was merely a passive recipient, but was at all times creatively active."
