Michael Ponti belongs to the last dinasty of romantic pianist . His playing is striking but yet expressive His readings of the Scriabin sonatas may be surpased only by Sviatoslav Richter specially on the second, fifth and ninth, but his playing is remarkable and offers us some of the forgoten aspects of Scriabin, explores his complex moods that goes from the anguish to melancholy with conviction. These collection is , in fact, an important document about the nature of the man /Scriabin / behind the mussician. A must for those who loves the craft of this russian composer and a new opportunity for knowing this extraordinary and well gifted pianist.
