Originally from Zoltán Venéczi

“Sofronitsky, who was Scriabin’s son-in-law and a great interpreter of his music, said “Remember, when you play Scriabin he will overthrow you emotionally. You have to have icecubes in your veins.” Which is a paradox because you don’t want to sound like you’ve got icecubes in your veins. But you have to maintain an iron control or else all the passion will just blindside you. His music is so visceral, so hyper-everything, hyperemotional, hypersensuous, hypererotic, hypermanic, hyperexciting… But you have to stay connected to the structure.

But even when structure is more obvious, one has to be careful. For example, Chopin sort of stands halfway between Mozart and Scriabin. Chopin has all this clarity and all the structure and all the purity, and yet if that’s all you play, if you leave out the magic, you’ve got nothing. But if you only play the magic it’s quite sickening. I mean, if you get all vaporous and emotional it’s nice for a few minutes — and then yuck. And with Scriabin, of course, it’s practically the other side of the coin.”

From 10 October until 1 November, something unbelievable is happening in Oxford. Across 62 concerts, with 150 artists, the Oxford Lieder festival is putting on the Schubert Project. A focus on Schubert’s songs? A look at Schubert’s Vienna? A glimpse of the creative imagination that inspired the world’s greatest outpouring of song? No, something much more ambitious: for the first time in this country, the Schubert Project will present performances of Franz Schubert’s complete songs.
