Notes & Reviews:

Scriabin wrote his first Etude at age 15 (Op. 2, No. 1) and continued using this form up until shortly before his death. A few years after his first effort (in 1894), Scriabin composed the heroic set of Op. 8 Etudes, entering into his first maturity. Almost 10 years later, Scriabin composed his next set, the Op. 42 Etudes, works that contain something of the mystic theosophy he was so involved with at that point. The late Etudes are all characterized by an even freer fantasy with sparer gestures and an increasingly systematic use of 'mystic' harmonies. Garrick Ohlsson's many recordings for Bridge Records include the first eight volumes of a Complete Beethoven Sonata cycle, currently in progress. Volume 3 of that cycle (BDG 9207) was the winner of a 2007 Grammy for "Best Solo Instrumental Recording of the Year."
