Expressive allure and refined originality are the hallmarks of much of Alexander Scriabin’s piano music. Miniatures such as the Feuillets d’album (album leaves) and the Impromptus, draw on examples by composers including Chopin, Schumann and Tchaikovsky. The Fantaisie, Op.28 is notable for its brooding opening, melodic abundance and virtuoso style, while the Opus 51 and 56 collections create a multiplicity of moods. The great Soviet pianist Sviatoslav Richter regarded Scriabin’s music as ‘a poetical drug’, and contemporary commentators described it as ‘full of fancy, delight and beauty’. The first of this two-volume collection can be heard on Naxos 8573527.
