Alexander Gadjiev - LIVE

A journey through different eras and sensitivities, starting from the humorous refinement of Haydn’s world, passing through the more colorful world of the music of the late Chopin and Messiaen;  Scriabin as a point of contact between two worlds, a pivot that turns towards the Russian universe of Shostakovich and Prokofiev;  finally a trilogy dedicated to war and death which starts with Prokofiev’s Seventh Sonata, written during the Second World War, and which continues in Carl Vine’s short Threnody, concluding with Liszt’s epic Funeraillés.
