My name is Alexander. I am an aspiring writer, pianist, chemist, medical student, and gay rights activist. I am a trilingual, Kemalist libertarian with the cheekbones of a coke addict and the nose of a guinea pig. Here shalt there be pre-Raphaelite artwork, the music of several dead Russian men, medical illustration, and the occasional bit of aesthetic pandering. Be welcome, and always walk on the left.
Alexander Scriabin | Piano Sonata No.8, Op.66 (1913)
A criminally underplayed gem from Scriabin’s mystic later works. The descending motif that begins the Allergro agitato section is without doubt one of the most haunting in the repertoire. Thank you to allarmunumralla on YouTube for this phenomenal digital rendering.
