Alexandre Scriabine: Piano Prelude In E flat Minor Op. 16 No. 4 By Guillaume Coppola

A minor thought

Born on the 6th January 1872 in Moscow, Alexandre Scriabine would grow up to be one of the most inventive and divisive composers of the 19th and early 20th centuries. To get the sombre and subtle sound of this work, the piano is played very delicately, forcing the pianist to pause and think about each note. He doesn’t have to do it for long, however. At one minute and four seconds, Sciabine’s piece is over before you know it!
