In general we distinguish three phases of creativity. The twelve etudes Opus 8 were all composed around 1894/95. His compositions of this period are still very romantic. These works abound in young, rapturous energy but are all completely different in character. Scriabin alternates here between dolorous melancholy and poignant powers of expression. The eight etudes Opus 42 which he wrote around nine years later belong to Scriabin's middle creative period. These are distinct from the first period because of their augmented harmonic language. He modulates more now and resolves dissonances later. Thus we hear newer, more suspenseful images of sound. The etudes Opus 65 belong to Scriabin's last creative period. Now his music is reminiscent already of the free-tonal works of the Second Viennese School of Schoenberg, Berg and Webern.

The word ecstasy designates something very sensuous and soulful at the same time. It is important to know that with Scriabin ecstasy is firstly of a spiritual nature, but secondly also involves erotic tension. By taking the title "Ecstasy" I want to draw attention to this aspect in his music, because many etudes of Scriabin's are permeated with his striving towards a state of ecstasy. From a certain point in time onwards Scriabin's entire musical oeuvre was actually directed towards reaching a state of absolute ecstasy. His plan was - similar to Wagner - to create a Gesamtkunstwerk, a synaesthetic, total work of art, into which all the senses are drawn. The etudes are technically very demanding works, and it is particularly the virtuosity needed for these works that enables us to express Scriabin's passion. His etudes are therefore much more than finger exercises. They are fantastic, multifaceted works, each with its own character and individual, often poetic contents.

The pianist Michele Gurdal is a " rare, authentic Romantic" (Dimitir Bashkirov). Michele Gurdal was only nine years of age when she played the solo in Joseph Haydn's Piano Concerto in G Major with the Belgian Chamber Orchestra live on Belgian television. By the age of seventeen she had already completed her studies at the Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles in piano, chamber music and music history with the Diplom de Premier Prix. She studied in the master class of Homero Francesch in Zurich and in conclusion with Professor Anatol Ugorski at the University of Music in Detmold.
