The Telegraph

...it is a testament to Pletnev’s understanding of and thorough immersion in the manner of Skriabin’s musical thinking that this performance is both fluid and taut, the music’s colours gleaming and shimmering...an outstanding tribute to Skriabin in his centenary year.

Classical CD Choice

...with this overwhelming performance, as orgiastic as the composer might have wished.

From the music’s languid caresses to its precipitous teasings, this is the most erotically charged performance of the piece I can recall. Heavens, what an experience. In fact I’m certain you won’t hear a more powerful or persuasive account of this piece any time soon. Incandescent Scriabin, superbly recorded...
