None of the pieces on this disc was written later than 1894, when Scriabin was 22; all reveal a prodigious young talent heavily indebted to Chopin, with just occasional glimpses of the idiosyncrasy and perfumed eroticism that were to characterise the later composer. Stephen Coombs is the faithful and sympathetic interpreter. Barry Millington
