A page has now been added for new Scriabin articles. The first article, by Scriabin scholar and society co-chairman Simon Nicholls, is entitled On the tracks of Scriabin as pianist and is now available to view here. The Association hopes to add further articles over the coming months.
An article by Scriabin Association co-founder, Darren Leaper, entitled, “A Recorded History of Alexander Scriabin’s Piano Music: From the Composer as Pianist, to his First Pioneers at the Moscow Conservatory to Present Day” will be published across the next two EPTA magazines in April and September 2015.
