Notes & Reviews:

This mid-priced reissue in Hyperion's Helios series features Piers Lane's performances of the complete Scriabin Préludes. His renditions are bold and compelling, matching technical bravura with a rich vein of poetry and color and communicating the composer's vivid and exceptional imagination. Beautifully recorded and superbly annotated by Simon Nicholls, this set is a must for all lovers of Scriabin and the piano.

BBC Music Magazine
Lane certainly knows how to tease out the music’s textural subtleties; his emotional commitment is undeniable, as is his grasp of the poetic/virtuosic dichotomy inherent in Scriabin’s music.

ClassicsToday
Lane's flawless finger and inspired brain are totally attuned to Scriabin’s hyper-expressive sound world. Gorgeous, flattering sonics help elevate this recording to reference version status among complete Scriabin cycles. Bravo!

The Independant
Lane is the perfect guide to Scriabin’s shimmering miniature masterpieces.

The Times
Lane's technical brilliance and assurance captures the most elusive qualities of this music, as one dream-vision dissolves into another … [his] control and balance of their veiled sonorities is wonder-filled.
