Scriabin: The Complete Piano Sonatas

Scriabin: The Complete Piano Sonatas

Marc-André Hamelin (piano)


Both as composer and virtuoso pianist, Scriabin was heir to the Classical and Romantic sonata tradition, but the transformation of this musical language in his own works was to be crucial for the survival of the sonata principle into the twentieth century.

This set includes all ten of the 'mature' Sonatas, the Fantaisie, Op 28, and the youthful Sonate-fantaisie. This last, published only after the composer's death, shows an astonishingly sure hand developing in the fourteen-year-old.
