Alexander Scriabin’s music metamorphosizes, from an intimate sound world inspired by Chopin, through a series of explosive breakthroughs, and finishes in an ecstatic and mystical universe. Pianist Vadym Kholodenko’s new recording of Preludes, Etudes & Sonatas lets the prismatic beauty of Scriabin shine, and it's WCRB's CD of the Week.
