Maria Lettberg performs Scriabin
Maria Lettberg became internationally known by her recording oft he complete piano solo works (with opus numbers) by Alexander Scriabin for the label Capriccio. In 2012 the German label Es-Dur released Maria Lettberg’s new recording with early piano works without opus numbers by Alexander Scriabin. Apart from an early piano sonata in E flat minor Alexander Scriabin composed a lot of short, but marvelous romantic pieces at that time. Maria Lettberg recorded also four gloomy preludes by Julian Scriabin (1908-1919), who drowned “in the Dnieper River under tragic, unexplained circumstances”. By the way Maria Lettberg played Scriabin’s works on a richly colored and beautiful singing C. Bechstein grand piano D 282 – so she chose the favorite piano brand of the composer.
