The progression of Scriabin’s work as embodied in his ten piano sonatas chronicle the development and unfolding of a unique voice which to this day sings unlike any other in musical history. Garrick Ohlsson offers titanic readings of these ever-fascinating works. Since his triumph as winner of the 1970 Chopin International Piano Competition, Garrick Ohlsson has established himself worldwide as a musician of magisterial interpretive and technical prowess. Garrick Ohlsson commands an enormous repertoire, and this "Complete Scriabin Sonatas" joins his "Complete Beethoven Sonatas" and "Complete Scriabin Etudes" on the Bridge Records label.

***

“Ohlsson delivers the single best performance with his account of Sonata No. 9, Black Mass. Here he appears genuinely engaged with Scriabin’s febrile world…Consistent qualities throughout Ohlsson’s set include his infallibly precise delineation of line and texture, any sense of rambling avoided by his clear articulation of each sonata’s structure…”

Classical Ear

****

“He [Scriabin] is exploring, discovering, altering, and would soon break through musical boundaries (parallel to, but different from, Schoenberg) and invoking the occult, becoming a high-priest of mysticism…it’s the sonatas from the Mephisto-like No 5 onward, all single-movement affairs, which especially fascinate: volatile, perfumed, enchanted, satanic…Garrick Ohlsson is technically and musically fluent…his sympathy and clarity are notable.”

MusicWeb International

May 2017

“To all this Ohlsson is a reliable guide. He has power and a commendable grasp of structure, so that Sonata No. 7, for example, comes out as a more Beethovenian work than usual. He can also be graceful and delicate: the three part passages in Sonata No. 4 and elsewhere come out with the right kind of glitter and sparkle.”
