Volume IV of Skrjabin's Complete Piano Sonatas unites Sonata No. 9 op. 68 (nicknamed "Black Mass" - but not by Skrjabin) and Sonata No. 10 op. 70. These two works originated around the same time, in 1911-13 and 1912-13, respectively.

Christoph Flamm has given both sonatas a fundamentally fresh look in this new Urtext edition. Exploiting all the autograph sources, including Skrjabin's sketches and drafts, he has arrived at surprising new readings. His foreword sheds light on the genesis and significance of these pieces; the many variants are documented in detail in the Critical Commentary. The high editorial standards are complemented by spacious engraving and practical page-turns.
