Synopsis

Amazon.com
In general, this is a very interesting, useful, and entertaining sampler of Scriabin played by some of his best Russian interpreters (but lacking Sviatoslav Richter, perhaps the greatest of them all). Heinrich Neuhaus was more successful as a teacher than pianist, while Alexander Goldenweiser, Samuel Feinberg, and Vladimir Sofronitsky were major artists. Sofronitsky, the composer's son-in-law, best captures his fantastic world. Don't believe the nonsense about Scriabin's 1910 "cylinders of astonishing clarity and sonority," though. They aren't cylinders; they're piano rolls, and the mechanical process removes most of the pianist's personality. --Leslie Gerber
