Piano Sonata No. 10 in C major, Op. 70


Vers la flamme, Op. 72

 Olli Mustonen Soloist

This album features Olli Mustonen with piano works by Alexander Scriabin, which have become his signature pieces in recital concerts.
The virtuoso sets of Etudes and Preludes cover a wide range of late-Romantic expressions, from heroic to religious, ecstatic to melancholic. The Sonata No. 10 is regarded as one of Scriabin’s greatest works. The collection culminates with the pianistic tour-de-force of Vers la flamme, an astonishing piece famously championed by the late Vladimir Horowitz.
Olli Mustonen has been hailed by The Sunday Times as, "a living dream of pianism, having broken through an expressive barrier that other players do not know exists." On this recording, he performs on his instrument, a Fazioli F278.

"... I appreciate Mustonen’s wide dynamic range and sensitive touch and have no problems recommending this as a good overview of Scriabin’s music."

Julian Haylock - BBC Music magazine - July 2012

"an extraordinary pianist for extraordinary music. This is Scriabin as you have never heard him before, played by one of music’s most formidable and compulsive free spirits ... Like Olivier, who could mesmerise the back row of an audience with a look, Mustonen’s beady and dazzling pianism is truly hypnotic. He has been excellently recorded and I can hardly wait to hear him in say, Ravel’s Gaspard de la nuit. Few pianists have more potent sense of the demoniac in music."

Bryce Morrison - Gramophone magazine - June 2012
