: Scriabin's Poem of Ecstasy

Alexander Scriabin bbc.co.uk

Russian composer Alexander Scriabin was an innovative and complex man. Leo Tolstoy described his music as "a sincere expression of genius"... and Scriabin himself would likely have agreed. On Monday's Performance Today, learn more about Alexander Scriabin and hear his "Poem of Ecstasy" performed in concert by the Cincinnati Orchestra.
