Scriabin in the Himalayas
The concert, which was the highest publicly attended piano concert in history, featured Coady Green - Smith.
Held on the terrace of Thikse Monastery in Ladakh, India, Scriabin in the Himalayas was a spectacular concert in tribute to the great mystic and musical genius, Russian composer Alexander Scriabin. The occasion was fitting as exactly 100 years earlier, Scriabin passed on to the finer realms of harmony. His final opus, Mysterium Magnum, was left unfinished, and his bold designs of a seven-day-long, multi-sensory spectacle in a Himalayan monastery sadly had to be abandoned. This was the first performance of the composer’s music ever held at the foothills of the Himalayas–a realisation of his greatest dream over a century after its conception.
