Alexander Scriabin's first published Piano Sonata op. 6 is a dark work which reaches its climax at the end of the 3rd movement, with hammering chords that are joined to the final movement, a sombre funeral march.
Piano Sonata No.1 F Minor Op.6 is linked to a time of crisis in Scriabin's life when, in 1891, the year before his final exam at the music conservatory, Scriabin injured his right hand due to his ambitious practicing.
This seriously jeopardized his career as a pianist, yet Scriabin still managed to complete his piano studies in 1892, gaining a gold medal.
This is an Urtext edition of this key work by Scriabin's, edited and presented by Scriabin expert Valentina Rubcova.
