About

Alexander Scriabinís music was admired by Tolstoy as Ďa sincere expression of geniusí while the composer once described himself as Ďall impulse, all desireÖí. Rivalling Rachmaninov as a virtuoso musician, the colourful young pianist/composer Scriabin found inspiration in his hero Chopin, while adding Russian darkness to his Impromptus and sensuous passion to the technically demanding Sonate-fantaisie. This album of lesser-known works also includes the precocious 11-year-oldís Canon in D minor.
