Notes and Editorial Reviews

Scriabin's piano music is on a cosmic scale, it possesses a mystical infinity. In the history of Russian piano music, these Sonatas are the emblems of the first of the revolutionaries. Prokofiev, Lourié and Mosolov followed. 'Sonatas 6-10' form as it were a great granite block that stands alone in piano literature.
