The first part of a survey of Scriabin's ten Piano Sonatas, works that microcosmically reflect the composer's overall compositional approach and growth from the Romantic warmth of his early language to the later, more atonal, and uniquely "Scriabinesque" voice, which, according to author Henry Miller, "sounds like... a bath of ice, cocaine, and rainbows." Here we heard Ruth Laredo's interpretation of the Sonatas.
