    Scriabin: Nocturne in F# Minor, Op. 5 (Andante)
    Prelude in B Major, Op. 27, No.2 (Andante )
    Prelude in E Major, Op. 33, No. 1 (there is no tempo marking except quarter note = 96)

    I've been working on these for quite a while playing a few minutes at a time each day. I hope to rerecord the Nocturne with the agiatato a little faster when my hands are better.
    My favorite is the Op.33 Prelude. I am proud that I finally got it as soft as I like it without unsounded notes. :)

    Scriabin - Prelude in B major, Op. 27, no. 2

    Scriabin - Prelude in E major, Op. 33, no. 1

    Scriabin - Nocturne in F-sharp minor Op. 5, no. 1

    I can notice from your performance that your favorite is the Op.33-1, because it is esp. beautifully flowing!

    A small thing was unsatisfying to me: In the closing of the prelude Op.27-2 you seems to have cut the audio file a little bit earlier that it has to be. The last chord stops abrubtly. :(

    Thank to you I'm learning more and more about Scriabin, thanks! :D

    I've only heard the preudes. I know about all your recordings here, and I like also the
    less perfect or convincing of them. These two are IMHO about your top, and I think there
    are not many things to tell. Wonderfully played, rich both in dynamics/timbre details and
    in general conception. Congratulations and all best,
    Sandro

    These are up on the site, John.

    Very nicely played! All three are beautiful pieces - I think I liked the second prelude best. That nocturne sounds hard.

    Quality recordings, all three. The ending of the 33.1 is beautifully done. The Nocturne is close to Balakirev with its stormy middle section. Good sonorities and hardly a slip worth mentioning. Well done ! Your piano seems to sound better than usual, except from some treble notes which are a bit iffy.

    Even Scriabin's early works - this Nocturne included - sound masterful to me. I really liked the expressive way you played it - and the middle section sound pretty tricky, so great work there !
