Scriabin Piano Sonatas Vol. II

In honor of the 100th anniversary of Scriabin's death, this recording completes my recorded version of the ten great piano sonatas. This 76-minute disc begins with the cataclysm of the Sonata no. 1, with its funeral march, through the seaside landscapes of the Second, to the occult sonorities of the Sixth and concluding with the triumphant mysticism of the Seventh. Joining these four sonatas are a selection of impressive shorter works that completes a portrait of this astonishingly wide-ranging musical imagination.
