Alexander Scriabin

Alexander Scriabin (1872 - 1915) was a Russian classical composer and pianist. He wrote mainly for the piano but also five symphonies and it was his first symphony which is very romantic, melodic and in the style of Rachmaninoff that started me listening to his music.

The recording below is of Valdimir Horowitz, the Russian pianist (1983 - 1989), on his return from years of self imposed exile living in the USA, giving a concert in Moscow in 1986. It is Scriabin's Etude in C sharp minor, Op.2 No.1 and it is beautiful.
