For all of his short adult life, Alexander Scriabin wroteor planned to writemonumental works of great import, and in between these efforts he produced a steady torrent of miniatures, tiny concentrated droplets of this same expansive genius. Fascinatingly, the composer's designation 'poème' is applied both to ground-breaking symphonic perorations and to the extended series of thirty-four little piano pieces, written over more than a decade and often grouped into little sets. Their inspirations are as varied as their titlesfrom black magic to cosmic aspirationand they offer a key into their composer's inner world.
