Scriabin playing his Preludes, Op. 11, nos. 13 & 14
« on: September 06, 2006, 10:19:43 PM »
In connection with a Scriabin topic in the Performance section of PianoStreet, I said I would upload an mp3 of Scriabin playing two of his Op. 11 Preludes. They were recorded on to music roll in February 1910 in Moscow, and transferred to audio by means of a Steinway Welte-Mignon grand in London last April.

The acoustic is fairly dry, but the music room which houses the Steinway is if anything slightly larger than the room in which Scriabin originally recorded, if one can make a wild guess from the photograph that survives.

The original topic is at:
