Collection: Scriabin, Alexander

Alexander Nikolayevich Scriabin (1872 – 1915)


Russian composer and pianist. In his early years, Frédéric Chopin's music greatly influenced his music, and he wrote works in a very tonal, romantic style. Later, and independently of his highly influential contemporary, Arnold Schoenberg, Scriabin developed a substantially atonal and much more dissonant musical language, accorded with his mysticism brand.
