Chapter Summary

This chapter proposes the challenge of reading the signs of diverse extra-musical and esoteric influences included by Alexander Skrjabin in his partitions and in his ideas about art. It captures objectively such influences transferred by Skrjabins music trough the analysis of the partitions, and discerns in the artists: sculptures, painters, poets, directors, choreographers, known by Skrjabin, the influence of his music. The chapter also traces in common theosophical readings, the idem sentire in base of the spiritual community between artists geographically and disciplinary away. Further, it identifies in figurative art, music, poetry or theatre the signs of common theosophical thoughts. Finally, the chapter talks about the symphonic synesthetic works of Skrjabin from 1905 to 1914: Poem of Extase, Pro-metheus or the poem of fire, The Mystherium.

Keywords: Alexandar Skrjabin; esoteric influence; music; theosophical thoughts
