The End of an Era: Keith Jarrett's Return to his Roots
Keith Jarrett, one of the greatest musicians and profilistic pianists of our time, has recently announced that he will no longer be able to hold up his career as a performer. Now 75, he suffered a pair of draining strokes two years ago that left his left side paralyzed and resulting in an unability to play the piano.

scriabin piano concerto
on: February 24, 2004, 02:26:26 PM
I am writing to see if anyone is a big fan of this concerto. It makes me quite sad that this work is hardly mentioned and seems in the shadows compared to all other standard works. I think especially in the first and second movements that there are some of the most ravishing melodies i have heard rivaling anything rachmaninoff wrote. I always cringe when i hear people describe scriabin as sounding like a russian chopin because i strongly disagree and i think this concerto is simply gorgeous
Anyone agree? And how hard is it technically as i have seen the score and it dosen't look as bad as it is made out.

Yes i have always liked the left hand parts to scriabin's piano music, even though they are difficult they seem to go so deep and low into the piano that the sound is immense, the concerto has lots of moments like that. I think scriabin had a wonderful for gift for melody that is entirley his own.
