Dialogue is the story of a poetic exchange between Laurence Oldak and two composers a century apart: Alexander Scriabin, the centenary of whose death is being commemorated on 14 April 2015, and Kirill Zaborov, a talented contemporary Franco-Russian composer.
This recording has its origin in the encounter between the pianist and the latter, whose music, full of imagery, betrays his Slavic origins and romantic inspiration. In a refined interpretation full of expressiveness, Laurence Oldak thus proposes a ‘Russian alliance’ and invites us to discover four pieces by the young composer – including his Dix Apparitions, which she premiered in November 2012 –, interspersing them with works by Scriabin, including the complete cycle of Huit Études, Op. 42 and the very intense Sonata No. 4, Op. 30.
