The first significant phase of his artistic career —, comprising opus nos. In these works, however, Scriabin goes beyond his models, bringing an extra richness, delicacy, and clarity to the idiom of his early romantic predecessors. The Second and Third Sonatas give further witness to the fresh vitality Scriabin will bring to this form.
In the early years of the century, Scriabin devoted much of his effort to symphonic writing, and it was through this that he first achieved a major metamophosis in personal idiom, strongly coloured with Wagerian harmony. Scriabin produced his first and second symphonies, and his Divine Poem , or Third Symphony, during this time. His robust and passionate Fourth Piano Sonata is a good example of this transitional period, especially in contrast with both the Third and Fifth sonatas.
From to , Scriabin lived abroad. In Brussels, he frequented theosophical circles, both satisfying and feeding his impulse for spiritual and philosophical realms. In , a second child, a son, Julian, was born to Scriabin and Tatiana Fyodorovna. With the completion of his last symphonic work The Poem of Fire: Prometheus , Scriabin completely broke through all tonal constraints and devised a harmonic style based on superimposition of diminished and augmented fourths — though it is also much more than this.
The five last years of his life were devoted solely to the piano. These compositions include Sonatas 6 through 10, sets of smaller-scale pieces, and especially Vers la Flamme. His seventh and last child, Marina, was born, and his father and his son, Lev, also died.

At the same time, he was an active performing artist. Petersburg, and London. In this final period, Scriabin abandons even the need for any form of rhythmic beat, instead superimposing different time-values, through a layering of harmonic and thematic material, and making use of acoustic effects like trills and tremolos.
His death came as a great shock to many. He was a sort of musical representative of Symbolism, immersed in hazy mystical ideologies derived from Eastern philosophical and religious sources. Scriabin sought to stretch music to its limits of sonorous density and expression, toward creating an atmosphere of spiritual and esthetic ecstasy. Its large range of expression — anger, fear, heroism, darkness, mystery, evil, light, fire, flight, intoxication, languor, love, six, ecstasy — is the very connective tissue of his life and thought.
His remarkable harmonic scheme is like a burgeoning new language but with few cognates. Acknowledgements to Daniel Kim for correction of facts.

Alexander Nikolayevich Skriabin, the noted Russian composer, was born on Christmas Day and died at Eastertide — according to Western-style calendrical reckoning, 7 January — 14 April, No one was more famous during his lifetime, and few were more quickly ignored after his death. Although he was never absent from the mainstream of Russian music, the outside world neglected him until recently. Today, there is worldwide resurgence of interest in his music and ideas.
Vladimir Horowitz in his late sixties began playing the Tenth, and it remains today in vogue among more daring virtuosi. It is thought by scholars, that had Skriabin lived beyond his brief 43 years, he would have preceded the Austrian school of duodecaphony, and Moscow would have become the center of atonality.
It was the first time he played music other than his own in public.
Rachmaninoff -- Preludes, Op. 23
In those days Skriabin was known as a pianist and Rachmaninoff was considered only as a composer. In London he visited the room in which Mme. Blavatsky died. Skriabin considered his last music to be fragments of an immense piece to be called Mysterium. This seven-day-long megawork would be performed at the foothills of the Himalayas in India, after which the world would dissolve in bliss. Bells suspended from clouds would summon spectators.

Sunrises would be preludes and sunsets codas. Flames would erupt in shafts of light and sheets of fire. Perfumes appropriate to the music would change and pervade the air. At the time of his death, Skriabin left 72 orchestral-size pages of sketches for a preliminary work Prefatory Action, intended to "prepare" the world for the apocalyptic ultimate masterpiece.
Alexander Nemtin, the Russian composer, assembled those jottings and co-created the Prefatory Action. Its three vast movements have been performed with great acclaim under conductors Cyril Kondrashin in Moscow and Vladimir Ashkenazy in Berlin with Alexei Lubimov at the piano.
