An outstanding group of local and international pianists concludes their tribute to one of the most intriguing and original of all composers of piano music, Alexander Scriabin, with two concerts. These concerts commemorate the 100th anniversary of Scriabin’s death and present his entire sonata cycle by date of composition in order to show the extraordinary development of Scriabin’s compositional style. Program four presents the Piano Sonatas No.s 8 & 10, Five Preludes, Op. 74, Vers la flamme, and other short works.
