Vasily Petrenko and the Oslo Philharmonic launch the first instalment in complete cycle of Scriabin symphonies. The new album marks the start of a creative partnership between the Oslo Philharmonic and LAWO Classics.

Scriabin's deep immersion in esoteric philosophy and related spiritual awakening became integral to his art. The Russian composer's initial conservative musical language evolved in the early 1900s and opened up to daring harmonic territories.

Petrenko notes "At first the orchestra was a little unsure about his [Scriabin] music, but they worked very hard on the Symphony No.3 and the 'Poem of Ecstasy' and are now big enthusiasts for Scriabin."

Ingrid R°ynesdal, the Oslo Philharmonic's Chief Executive Officer said of the recording: "Vasily Petrenko is passionate about Scriabin. His music especially suits the Oslo Philharmonic, with its rich string sound, fantastic woodwind soloists and uniquely strong brass section."
