Modern Prometheus

Cameron Carpenter Organ

Beethoven Orchestra Bonn

Dirk Kaftan Conductor


Works by Cameron Carpenter, Franz Liszt and Alexander Scriabin


Departure at the beginning of the 20th century: Inspired by theosophical studies, Alexander Scriabin's Europe-wide career as a pianist and composer took a new turn. Tonality receded into the background, theatrical forms favored the exploration of new worlds of sound. In diary entries, the composer repeatedly referred to the life-giving creative power of the mythical Prometheus: "The world lives in my consciousness as my act of creation. GMD Dirk Kaftan performs Scriabin's last orchestral work "Prométhée" in a concert of his Beethoven Orchestra Bonn with guest soloist Cameron Carpenter. The monumental symphonic poem is a synaesthetic total work of art, which in the original version even included a "color piano".
