Playing a slightly smaller Steinway than a concert grand, Brighton-born, Moscow-trained Yuri Paterson-Olenich shows real understanding of Scriabin’s visionary music, including one of the weirdest sonatas, the Seventh. What he lacks in sheer volume he makes up for in poetic dreaminess, though textures are always clear. Adrian Jack
