Notes & Reviews:

The fascinating character of Scriabin may best be appreciated not through his lush orchestral works, but his innovative piano music. The ten Sonatas for Piano span his career and sketch the path of his advancing melodic and harmonic language. Diabolically talented pianism is required to execute the pieces, provided here by the formidable Dmitri Alexeev.

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
Alexeev's release strikes me as ideal and well worth owning; I feel perfectly happy with making this my only set. He plays them flawlessly, with an almost supernatural variety of tone color and dynamic control, and his sense of rubato is appropriate. In 4:II, he manages the tricky rhythmic interplay between right and left hands without letting the music become frantic. Sound is good, perfectly effective for what it sets out to achieve.
