Scriabin's "Black Mass": The Ninth Piano Sonata of Alexander Scriabin
Kungl. Musikhögskolan, Institutionen för klassisk musik.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to analyse Alexander Scriabin’s Sonata No.9 ”Black Mass” from a musical perspective. This work includes a biography of the composer that helps to discover his philosophical ideas and the background of his musical world. His mental state and the surroundings of the time were among the biggest influences on his music. There is no comparison to his imaginative world.

This work includes a chapter about Scriabin’s 10 Sonatas where I have reviewed the main characteristics of each of the sonatas. It also includes an overview of the particular 9th Sonata.

The analysis of this sonata is from a musical point of view. The analysis focuses on the tools Scriabin was using to evoke a mystical and demonic atmosphere of the piece.

 

I have analysed the importance of the musical motives – the way of building the form with the motives and transforming the initial ideas of the main themes.

I have also analysed the interpretations of three world famous interpreters of Scriabin’s music, as well as some significant background connected to Scriabin if applicable. All of the interpreters are extremely different in their manner of playing Scriabin’s music and I have tried to find out the ways in which they have become so different.
