Alexander Scriabin (1872-1915)

The Piano Sonatas

 

Anna Malikova, piano

 

In 2015, we celebrate the hundredth anniversary of Alexander Scriabin's death. To commemorate this occasion, Russian pianist Anna Malikova and the ACOUSENCE label is issuing a new complete recording of the composer's ten piano sonatas, which will surely be regarded as definitive.

 

Scriabin completed his piano studies at what is today the Tchaikovsky Conservatory and, starting in Moscow, went on to have an international career. He himself was the first champion of his music, followed by Vladimir Sofronitsky, Heinrich Neuhaus and his pupil Lev Naumov. Naumov in turn was Anna Malikova's mentor for a period of 15 years, so with this background, she brings a high level of authenticity to these works.

 

Anna Malikova masters these sonatas, which test the very limits of piano technique, with impressive technical prowess and exceptional virtuosity. Not only does she display her deep understanding for the composer's mystical world, but also presents the incredible development of Scriabin's unique compositional style in a fascinating way. In his early years, he was still interested in the romantic, virtuosic tradition of Chopin and Liszt, only to break almost every compositional rule over the course of his career and blaze new paths.
