 As a matter of fact he did (piano rolls), and they're quite illuminating.  He must have been a magician with the pedal.

Are there any cd's available? Or should I go look for old lp's (I  believe that would be the answer)?  Perhaps some downloads out there?
I really have trouble finding information about it. So if anyone knows, I'd be very grateful!

 Also I would highly recommend the recordings of Vladimir Sofronitsky.  Unfortunately, he never had a career outside of the USSR due to Stalin, but if you want definitive Scriabin performances (he was Scriabin's son-in-law).  The only caveat is that he was an erratic performer, and alongside every incredible performance is a poor one.  But the great performances are incandescent.
