Abstract

This document is dedicated to the Russian composer Alexander Scriabin and his unique harmonic language. Notion of symmetry and its numerous manifestations will be the primary focus and lenses through which Scriabin's harmonic language will be explored in greater detail. The piano cycle Trois Morceaux, Opus 52 has been chosen as an exemplary work for the analysis. Finally, transcription of the Trois Morceaux, Opus 52 for chamber orchestra will conclude this work.
