Is it Sofronitsky? Or ? Or Horowitz? Or anyone else?
In my view, it’s Sofro…
Wadya think? Randomly, is there any living pianist (other than da Sock) who is a really great Scriabin player? Are there any newer recordings in particular which one should hear?
Eckardstein is one of the best of the young crop… imo. And he’s even better live than on his CD.
The best of all time would have to be Sofronitsky, Feinberg, Richter… Horowitz, Sokolov and Neuhaus are great too, but I feel like they didn’t record enough to give me a full picture of their Scrib playing.
There are also some great Scriabin recs by the likes of Zhukov, Freire, Fiorentino, Villa, Nikonovich, Oborin, Scherbakov, Gilels etc.
