Alexander Scriabin (1872-1915)

I have come back to listening to Alexander Scriabin (1872-1915) recently.
He was a Russian composer who thought he was a mystic and wrote a ton of piano music. He was a sort of Russian Chopin.
Harmonically he was ahead of his time. His music can be spooky, exhilarating and intense and, as I have read, is also pretty good description of his personality. I have heard his music described as “a sugar cube dissolving in a bitter cup of coffee” and “a cold wind through bleak moors.” Very interesting.

What do you think? Have you clicked the link to give him a listen?
