Having never played any Scriabin pieces, nor knowing much about his output (except for that one popular etude), I am in need of some guidance as to where a good place would be for me to start. Aryobrand has graciously offered to help and of course all you other members are welcome to add any insights you may have, as well. Here is a general idea of what I would desire: I’d like try out pieces from each of Scriabin’s three periods – that sounds very interesting to me – to hear how he changed. I like shorter pieces, like fewer than five pages long, and I prefer any tempi slower than vivace. Difficulty level – anything under really-hard-crazy advanced. Tone – “romantic ... harsh ... evil and twisted ... lascivious ... passionate ... etc” I like all of those things. Hope that helps to narrow it down.
