Mystic, visionary, virtuoso, and composer, Alexander Scriabin (1872 – 1915) dedicated his life to creating musical works which would, as he believed, open the portals of the spiritual world. Scriabin started composing during his Conservatory years. Mostly inspired by Chopin, his early works include nocturnes, mazurkas, preludes, and etudes for piano. Typical examples of Romantic music for the piano, these works nevertheless reveal the composer's strong individuality.
Taiwanese pianist Teng-Kai Yang graduated from Soo Chow University in Taipei. Mr. Yang has performed throughout the United States, Europe, and Taiwan. He currently pursues his doctorate in piano performance at the University of Houston under the tutelage of legendary pianist Abbey Simon.
