About the author (1893)

Aleksandr Scriabin received his musical education from his aunt. At the age of 12, he began piano lessons. He entered the Moscow Conservatory in 1898 as a student of Safanov. In 1899 Safanov conducted Scriabin's first orchestra piece, Reverie, in Moscow. He also conducted Scriabin's first symphony in 1901. Scriabin was profoundly influenced during his early years by Chopin, Liszt, and Wagner, but he soon developed his own style. Scriabin was a genuine innovator of harmony.
