Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Scriabin's Études span the whole of his composing career, marking a highly transitional period in classical music. From a very young age, Scriabin wrote miniatures for the piano, and his early Chopin esque compositions earned him the nickname 'the Russian Chopin' - frustrating for the young composer who was eager to look beyond the established forms of waltzes and mazurkas. While many of the earlier Études bear hallmarks of the Romantic era, Scriabin soon began to explore his own unique tonality, starting from Op.42 with its noticeable use of tritones, and later when he centred on the so called 'Mystic' chord, based around perfect and augmented fourths.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
Alexeev plays simpler pieces - preludes, poems, and a waltz - between each set of etudes. It's a welcome. Excellent recording with big, resonant bass, perfect complement to Alexeev's commanding style. His breathing is audible in the handful of quiet pieces.
