: Alexander Scriabin's quest

Alexander Scriabin

Alexander Scriabin was not so much a composer as a musical metaphysician. He tried to create music with the power to change the world. Did he succeed? On Friday's Performance Today, we head to Warsaw for a rare performance of the Piano Concerto by the young Scriabin. Nick Canellakis guest-hosts.
