About

Piers Lane’s performances of the complete Scriabin Préludes are bold and compelling, matching technical bravura with a rich vein of poetry and colour and communicating the composer’s vivid and exceptional imagination. Beautifully recorded and superbly annotated by Simon Nicholls, this set is a must for all lovers of Scriabin and the piano.

Lane certainly knows how to tease out the music’s textural subtleties; his emotional commitment is undeniable, as is his grasp of the poetic/virtuosic dichotomy inherent in Scriabin’s music’ - BBC Music Magazine

‘Lane is the perfect guide to Scriabin’s shimmering miniature masterpieces’ - The Independent

‘To find contemporary performances that convey … aspects of the music more vividly and with greater sympathy, as well as with a good deal more technical refinement, one need look no further than Piers Lane’s recent traversal’ - International Record Review

'Lane’s technical brilliance and assurance captures the most elusive qualities of this music, as one dream-vision dissolves into another … [his] control and balance of their veiled sonorities is wonder-filled’ - The Times

Piers Lane is easily the master of all this … you get the sense this music is in his blood. The preludes have been well worth waiting for’ - Amazon.co.uk

Lane’s flawless finger and inspired brain are totally attuned to Scriabin’s hyper-expressive sound world. Gorgeous, flattering sonics help elevate this recording to reference version status among complete Scriabin cycles. Bravo!’ - ClassicsToday.com
