Scriabin – Etude in D-sharp minor Op. 8 No. 12 – Horowitz, Piano

Scriabin’s Etude in D-sharp minor, Op. 8, No. 12, was composed in 1894. It features many technical challenges, including treacherous stretches with intervals up to an eleventh, numerous jumps in the left hand, repetitive chord strikes, and abundant octaves. It is a particular favorite among pianists and audiences alike. This piece was a favorite encore of Vladimir Horowitz. – Vladimir Horowitz WikipediaVladimir Horowitz Facebook
