Piano Sonata No. 5, Op. 53 by Alexander Scriabin (1872-1915). Edited by Michael Schneidt and Valentina Rubcova. For Piano. Henle Music Folios. Softcover. 40 pages. G. Henle #HN1111. Published by G. Henle (HL.51481111).
Composed at the same time as Scriabin's great poem for orchestra “Le Poème de l'extase.” Both works are based on the same literary program. Scriabin spent a long time honing the text, which represents his philosophic idea of the development of the world in poetic form, until its publication in a separate volume in 1906.
