    Program Notes
    Alexandre Nikolayevich Scriabin (1872-1915) was one of the most prolific Russian composers and pianists of his time. In his early life, Scriabin’s musical language consisted of a romantic and lyrical style and was heavily influenced by pianist and composer, Frederick Chopin. However, in his later career, Scriabin developed an atonal and dissonant style of writing, separately from Schoenberg's atonal musical system, that influenced many Russian composers during his time, such as Sergei Prokofiev and Igor Stravinsky.

    Originally titled, Prelude and Nocturne for the left hand, Op. 9 no. 1&2, this piece is composed of two movements and is originally written in 1894 for piano and strictly for the left hand. The musical style of the piece conveys late romanticism and is uniquely lyrical throughout. Scriabin composed this piece shortly after he injured his right hand while learning Liszt's Don Juan.
