Mysterium

In the late 19th century.the mystic composer Scriabin envisioned a performance of his music with the backdrop of the sunset and the Himalayas. He called it “Mysterium,” defining this integration of all the elements as a ‘universal work.’ These concerts are my effort to re-create his concept of integrating all elements into an unifying experience. In the sunset concerts, even the light changes in the room become part of the performance.
