About the album

Fanfare: Ulasiuk’s performances of the sonatas are highly illuminating with respect to those influences. As in his previous Rachmaninoff and Prokofiev album, Ulasiuk plays with enviable technique, beauty of tone, and an understanding of the music before him that penetrates to its core. He duplicates those attributes here in his readings of Scriabin’s sonatas, with the additional insight into the music that relates it to the time, place, and influences that produced it. [Sonata no. 9] If Ulasiuk does not surpass the famed Horowitz interpretation, he comes viscerally close...

During the rest of his live Scriabin made a living as a composer and concert pianist.He established contracts with publishers and also had a patron in his former student Margarita Morozova for some time. In addition, he annually won a money prize in the context of the Glinka-prize for new compositions that was set up by Beljajev.
Scriabin primarily wrote for solo piano and orchestra. His music progressively evolved over the course of his life, although the evolution was very rapid and especially brief when compared to most composers. His earliest piano pieces resemble those of Frédéric Chopin. The works from his middle and late period use very unusual harmonies and textures.
From 1904 till 1910 Scriabin lived in western Europe, primarily in Switzerland, but also in northern Italy, Paris and Brussels. After his return to Russia he found himself in the middle of a circle of admirers who were attracted to his exalted and mystic ideas. During the last years of his life he worked on a grandiose manifestation, a Gesamtkunstwerk, Mysterium, in which all arts and all people would have been united. He left only sketches of the prelude to this piece (L'action préalable) and large amounts of text.
