Piano - Advanced
Composed by Alexander Scriabin (1872-1915). Edited by Murray Baylor. Masterworks; Piano Solo; Solo. Alfred Masterwork Edition. Form: Etude. 20th Century; Masterwork; Romantic. Sheet. 8 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.8049).

Item Number: AP.8049

This famous Etude was written in 1894 and its dramatic flavor is made the more technically challenging by large left hand chords and abundant chord repetition, jumps in the left hand, and numerous right hand melodic octaves. This Murray Baylor edition features footnotes pointing out dynamic differences between the published and the autograph versions of the work.

  • April 20, 2008 It is a great song... bad edition

    I could not stand this edition... It is clumsy and confusing with impractical sugestions. Try a different edition.

  • February 01, 2008 Terrific song, Dreadful edition

    I love scriabin, and love this classic song. But this edition is aweful. The notes are rearanged, some brought to the left hand that are meant to be played with the right, and some brought to the right hand that are meant to be played with the left. It is...

    much easier the other way.

  • September 25, 2007 fantastic piece

    I listened to Horowitz, Gilels and Lang Lang interpretation and this piece became one of my favourites. It requests however a lot of technical skills, and it became a great challenge for me. Accurate edition with fingering, etc..

    This etude's motif rhythm was yanked from Chopin's Etudes, OP.10 no.12 in C minor.
