Scriabin, Prelude, Opus 16 #1, B Major (piano solo)

Scriabin was an interesting Russian composer who's music was way ahead of its time. Over the years it became increasingly atonal and presaged 12 tone composition. He once said it should sometimes be accompanied by colored lights. That was in the 19th Century !

I love watching the progression of the notes up the scale and being able to see the lengths of the notes with this display. I always found piano music a bit blocky aleady- if that makes any sense, so the structure makes it even more so. It doesn't cause the piece to flow easily and breaks it up rather than bringing it e sore together as a whole. Although i have no right or education in order to be critical this is my one sore point.
