Vladimir Ashkenazy

Alexander Nikolayevich Scriabin[1] (Russian: Алекса́ндр Никола́евич Скря́бин; 6 January 1872 [O.S. 25 December 1871] -- 27 April [O.S. 14 April] 1915) was a Russian composer and pianist. Scriabin's work initially possessed a lyrical and idiosyncratic tonal language in line with the innovations of Frιdιric Chopin, but developed an increasingly atonal and dissonant musical style.

Piano Concerto in F sharp minor, Op. 20 (1896)

I. Allegro
II. Andante, Theme (7:40)
 Var. I (9:18)
 Var. II Allegro scherzando (10:52)
 Var. III Adagio (11:26)
 Var. IV Allegretto (13:18)
 Tempo I (14:49)
III. Allegro moderato (16:14)

Vladimir Ashkenazy and the London Philharmonic conducted by Lorin Maazel

Scriabin composed this concerto in 1896. Written when he was 24, it was his first work for orchestra and the only concerto he composed. Scriabin completed the concerto in only a few days in the fall of 1896, but didn't finish the orchestration until the following May and did not premiere the work until October 23, 1897.

I just found this recording of a second published version of Scriabin's Etude op. 8 no. 12. I'd never even heard of this until just recently.



I really like this revision. I don't know why, but I can't seem to stop listening to it. It's quite an interesting contrast to the original etude and its very expressive sounding.

I like it a lot and actually I think it is the version I heard first.

I've been spending some time lately listening to most of Scriabin's works, especially the lesser played ones, and I came across this one. What a true gem it is! I don't understand why this piece is  performed so rarely.

Fantasie op. 28

Having played this before:
 (5:25) and spent countless hours on it... It's tough to listen to.  I appreciate the difference and what that must have taken, but it's not easy to accept the new one.

thanks for posting this.  I really like it more than the original in a lot of ways.  Except for about 4 bars before the final rush.  It has greater more complex thematic development.

Hi guys

So here are videos of Glenn Gould playing piano UNEDITED. These are tapes of him recording Brahms, testing pianos, and practicing by himself at home. Enjoy!

I really love this piece based on the great Axel F theme from Beverly Hills Cop. The composer is a new name to me.

Superior to anything composed by Chopin if you ask me. I΄m comparing apples with pears though.

Would love to hear it performed by Argerich and Sokolov.

This is one of the most incredible things I've ever seen. Katsaris's Beethoven-Liszt is consistently amazing, and the fantasy afterwards is very clever.

it's awesome and original, but the more i hear it the more some subtle hallmarks of Kapustin's faster music comes through, albeit this has some more 20th century modern elements, it seems  familar and fresh at the same time.

that kid can play. holy smokes  Shocked Shocked

haha Sergei's writing here is genius. Always loved Slonomski's pieces, I'm a little/scratch very disappointed in myself I missed this piece and only recently discovered it (odd given how much of his piano output I have sought and listened to).
Still, this performance, for a kid or not, is spot on. The girl gets it. wow indeed.

damn! That Slonimsky is definitely not my cup of tea but it is definitely hilarious and interesting at the same time. That beating on the top of the piano! Smiley) The little girl's performance is indeed impressive, she seems so concetrated and into it.
