Success with Scriabin

She celebrated a triumph at the RSO Cycle at the Konzerthaus: Anika Vavic, a pianist born in Belgrade and living in Vienna, enthralled her audience with Alexander Scriabin’s Piano Concerto in F-sharp Minor.

Anika Vavic

Scriabin, a brilliant pianist himself who enjoyed international success with this work, tried to realize his ideas of virtuosity, a specific dramaturgy of sound and a highly idiosyncratic instrumentation – the latter formerly demonized by the critics. Anika Vavic played these svelte cantilenas and attractive-sounding blocks of chords with elegance. For the orchestra, she was a driving partner, poised in the dialogues and intent on an opulent sound.
