Biography

Russian composer who achieved fame in Europe by age 20 as a virtuoso, winning a Gold Medal in 1892. He abandoned a military career to study at the Moscow Conservatory in 1888, becoming a piano teacher there 1898-1904, but then resigned to compose fulltime. His compositions and concert tours included a tour of the U.S. 1906-07 and his works include four symphonies, ten sonatas, preludes and a piano concerto. Scriabin compositions were noted for his attempt to crowd as many notes as possible into a single cord.
