Opinionz on Medtner

iz u zayin random impro iz a bad zheeyat? :sunglasses:

I like some of the Fairy Tales (in particular op 20 no. 1) but aside from that I don’t really get him. I don’t get late Scriabin either. Maybe I just need more exposure to that style and more time for it to sink in…

Honeztly late Scrib sounds totally different to me dan Medtner. But I’m no composition person.

I don’t think they sound the same by any means but I still kind of lump them into the same category, very abstract Russian music

ahahahah da ZCRIB ovahall haff mo workz dat reach GENSUI levelz fo zhor

da MED output mozly range from:

zumwut random to pretty gud :gav:
