James Kreiling specialises in music from the early 20th century, particularly that of Scriabin. His recordings encompassing the composer’s complete late piano music are critically acclaimed, including a five-star review in BBC Music Magazine. Inspired by Scriabin’s artistic vision, he often presents music in unusual formats and locations and is co-founder of Multiphonic Arts. This concert will include a performance of Scriabin’s Piano Sonata No. 10 accompanied by a lighting performance by Ian Costabile and Taran Harris built around a musical analysis of pitches and chord progressions based on Scriabin's synaesthetic associations.
This concert will be followed at 14.30 with a free workshop in which audience members are invited to try out the digital version of Scriabin's colour organ devised for this concert. Please register separately for the workshop.
