‘Alexandre Scriabin: from Romantic to Mystic’ Alexandre Scriabin (1872-1915) is a fascinating character in the world of music at the transition between two centuries. His numerous works for piano reflect the evolution of his style: starting with romantic compositions influences by Chopin, he moves towards a personal language, marked by his mystic philosophical convictions derived from oriental doctrines and announces the atonal sounds of the new era…
An unusually effective CD: her touch is genuinely poetic, and she works on a large tonal canvas, conjuring moods and atmospheres with compelling authority.
La Libre Belgique
It is a progression in a particular world, where Lankova, in perceptible harmony with the composer, joins the sonorous and the mystic, the form and the spirit. The play is clear, the lead is natural, the colors are infinite.
International Record Review
Lankova’s Scriabin CD is very fine indeed. A first–rate recording does justice to the wonderful rich array of sounds that she coaxes from her instrument.
