Compositions by Alexander Scriabin.

Piano Sonatas

Scriabin wrote twelve sonatas for piano, ten of which he published. The first four are in the Romantic style. Initially the music is reminiscent of Chopin, but Scriabin's unique voice, present from the beginning, becomes fully present even in these early pieces. With the brief fourth sonata, Scriabin explored more complex, chromatic harmonies. Each of the following sonatas are often highly dissonant and have a new form of tonality that some describe as atonal and others describe as simply different from conventional tonality. "Vers la flamme" was intended to be the eleventh sonata, but he was forced to publish it early due to financial concerns. Beginning with the fifth, Scriabin's published sonatas consist of only a single movement.
