Scriabin The Complete Works (18CD)

Re-released from 2015 the first ever set of Scriabin The Complete Works. Drawn principally from Decca’s distinguished catalogue, the set also features no fewer than 64 newly-recorded tracks - over 200 mins of music, newly recorded by Vladimir Ashkenazy and Valentina Lisitsa especially for this set.

Scriabin has in recent years become admired as one of the early 20th century’s most innovative and influential composers. The set concludes with a bonus disc showcasing great pianists across Decca, Philips and DG who have played Scriabin down the years, from Horowitz, Richter and Cherkassky onto Kissin, Grosvenor and Trifonov.
