Schubert Sonata in D major
Scriabin Sonata No 2 in G sharp minor
Scriabin Selection of Etudes from Op 8
Scriabin perfected his Chopin-meets-Impressionism style with his Second Piano Sonata, and in his Opus 8 Etudes the composer was forcing ever-greater technical feats. Sensational Russian pianist Evgeny Kissin exerts his virtuosity and technique into these works as well as Schubert’s Sonata in D Major, a result of the latter composer’s youthful mastery.
