Notes & Reviews:

This mid-priced reissue in Hyperion's Helios series features Piers Lane bringing his admired technical bravura and innate musicality to Scriabin's complete Études. To listen to the complete Études as presented on this album is to hear the gradual but total transformation of Scriabin's musical language. He began with a richly romantic and strongly emotional style centered on Chopin. After 1900 the texture and rhythmic structure of the music became increasingly intricate and fluid, while his sense of form grew ever more focused and concentrated. This provided the necessary balance to the overwhelmingly expressionistic, often erotic, urge in the musical material.
