About this Album
The CD of this album is available to purchase at ArkivMusic.
The Scriabin piano sonatas, performed here by American pianist Ruth Laredo, provide a musical biography, outlining the composer’s career and his stylistic progression. The New York Times praised Laredo's “sensuous, beautifully controlled playing," which expressed the “mad and slightly evil quality” of Scriabin’s work.
