Customer Review

on April 16, 2004
If you love Scriabin, get this recording (and also No 2 with the balance of the sonatas). Glemser has it all: absolute control (his balance between right and left hands is astounding), musicianship of the highest order and technique to match (actually to throw away) but which he does not abuse. He uses exactly what is needed to project this wonderful music in all its magic and mysterious beauty. He understands this music like no other.. This is very difficult music to play easily muddled by a lesser pianist (never mind hitting the notes), but you will no detect any straining in the playing. Forget Sofronitski. Ruth Laredo at her peak might have given competition. The sound is rich and detailed and cannot be faulted. The CD notes do not give credit to the superb instrument, which sounds like a Hamburg Steinway.
