5.0 out of 5 stars A Treasure Trove of Gems 12 Mar 2013
By Scriabinmahler TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
It's a shame that Scriabin's piano works are rarely played nowadays except few sonatas or preludes or etudes as encore pieces. In the 50-70s great pianists like Sofronitsky, Richter, and Horowitz would give all-Scriabin recitals. In this volume, you find gems of piano music like Nocturne for the left hand, Op.28 Fantasie, Op.32 Poems, and the later opuses which are imbued with mystical spirituality. It is truly mind blowing to see how earlier Romantic pieces gradually metamorphose, in seamless transition, into what seems to belong to space-age, in a few decades.

Like the other two volumes Scriabin solo piano scores, this one also has got alternative notations the composer adopted in his recital. The strong Lay-flat Sewn binding makes it very durable and easy to open and flip through. The print quality is not as good as those expensive German publications, but it is an amazing value for the price (the three volumes cover entire solo piano works by Scriabin).

5.0 out of 5 stars Overlooked composer Scriabin's musical thoughts in print!! 3 April 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This collection of mostly unrelated works by AlexanderNicolyavich Scriaban (1872-1915) is most undoubtedly the crown jewelof Twentieth-Century piano music; yet it is almost totally overlooked historically as well as musically. It represents not his ordered compositions, as do his preludes and etudes, but rather his sporadic, sometimes psychotic thoughts; it is a veritable musical diary of the very bizarre and mystical life of the great Russian enigma. It belongs on the shelf of any serious music student, especially those of Russian music, for in this myriad of masterworks are the very core of the underappreciated and often entirely overlooked Alexander N. Scriabin.

5.0 out of 5 stars .....as well. 13 Sep 2000
By Robin Harlow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
What the above review failed to mention is that the "Muzurkas, Poems, and Impromptues" book contains all of Scriabin's piano music excepting that which is contained in the "Preludes and Etudes" and the "Piano Sonata's" books. All three of these books are published by Dover and are not altered to death buy rotten editors. Comprehensive editions of composer's works are very valuable and often a huge oversight in the unusually chopy realm of sheet music. The book is also made as good as paperbacks get.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some of the most gorgeous works in the piano repertoire 3 Oct 2002
By Joanna Daneman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Dover publishes complete works of many composers, and they did pianists a huge favor by compiling the works of Scriabin into several volumes of music. Scriabin, a "bridge" composer between the 19th and 20th Century, composed romantic yet modernistic works sometimes reminiscent of Chopin. His later work was far more dense and individualistic. Unfortunately, he died in his 40's, but, like the short-lived Schubert,he left a considerable volume of works for the piano. The other Dover volumes are the Sonatas and the Preludes and Etudes. Logically, they put other minor works (nocturnes, dances, etc) into this volume.
If you are a skilled pianist, try the Op. 28 Fantasie. This work, sadly, is rarely recorded but is one of the most incredibly gorgeous things ever written for piano. The only other copy of this I own is in a Hungarian edition not available in the US, so rejoice if you play piano.
Dover prints music that is easy to read and the editing is usually blameless. This book is no exception. Highly recommended for serious piano students.

4.0 out of 5 stars Essential for any serious pianist, but rife with mistakes 7 Sep 2012
By miltonic - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
One of my favorite sheet music books. This book contains many moody pieces, half of which are quiet and contemplative, scattered with epic fiery and majestic pieces, and some erratic and chaotic compositions with a sinister tone. The overall mood of this book is melancholy but beautiful. Many of the songs are quite difficult, obscure timings such as a triplet bass and 5/16th notes treble timings combined make for some brain busting puzzles. Many of the chords require quite a spread of the fingers, it would be an extra challenge for smaller hands.

My only contention with the book is that it is chock full of editing errors. I have many sheet music books published by Dover, none of which I have found errors to this degree, literally dozens. As another reviewer pointed out it feels that each piece has an error, and if you don't notate the pages when you find them, sight readers will continually stumble over them until they take the time to correct the mistakes.

That being said, this book is well worth that irritation, don't overlook it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great music, poor book 25 Feb 2010
By T. Krug - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
To make it short, the music this book contains is amazing.
But there are some mistakes in it...maybe I found THE piece which contains almost a mistake on each page, but it is still annoying.
The pages are too thin and so not really enjoyable to turn. I am used to good thick paper and never realized that it could make a point. Now I know.
