If we start with the two sonatas that I know, the opening movement of the Op. The opening movement is divided in to two with the Grave section here banded together with the following Allegro, it is given separate tracks on the CPO disc, with a chorale like theme being the link between the two sections.
Mozart: Piano Sonata No.10 in C major, K.330 Analysis
The Adagio expressivo movement is typical Rheinberger with large romantic sweeps of music giving it an almost meditative feel. The final movement Fuga: The Sonata No 4 in A minor held a special place for Joseph Rheinberger, with it, and its predecessor having been based upon Psalm tunes. The final Fuga Cromatica: Tempo moderato , is again somewhat cyclical in the way that the psalm tune once again appears, although the main theme of the movement is original. If we look at some of the middle sonatas I particularly like the B minor Sonata No.
Another of the middle sonatas is the eighth, one of the best known of the twenty, which is largely due to the final movement Passacaglia , one of the longest single movements in the set. It has become an examination piece for organists and is the only such sonata movement composed by Rheinberger.

Stabat Mater G-moll, op. Kammerchor Stuttgart , Frieder Bernius. Keyboard style has become deliberately massive: Scriabin gave only one complete performance of this Sonata; perhaps its associations were too painful. The Sonata No 2 in G sharp minor, Op 19 —7 , takes its inspiration from nature: Their honeymoon took place in the Crimea, on the shores of the Black Sea. This does not represent a turning away from personal emotion: The piano writing has done away with the bombast of the First Sonata and returned to the delicacy and filigree of its youthful predecessor. Scriabin saw colours when he heard music and erected an elaborate synaesthetic system on this basis.
The key of E, in which this movement ends, an unusual departure from the norm for Scriabin, was to him bluish-white, the colour of moonlight. The device of embedding the melody in the middle of an arpeggiated texture goes back to the virtuoso Sigismond Thalberg — , whose speciality it was. A favourite device of Scriabin, who liked to give the melodic line to his stronger left hand, it reappears in the slow movement of the Third Sonata, the end of the first movement of the Fourth, and in the Seventh and Tenth Sonatas.
Not an unusual way of writing a sonata movement, but an essential aural signpost in the complex worlds of the Ninth and Tenth Sonatas. The initial motive also returns at the end of the movement, a feature of those works as well as of the Fifth.

The finale of the Second Sonata is a moto perpetuo; from this restless background emerges a heroically climbing, aspiring melody. Siegfried Schibli has pointed out that this theme is left incomplete until its final appearance near the end of the movement. Characteristically, Scriabin was dilatory about taking the decision to send off the completed manuscript until practically ordered to by Belaiev, who had published the First Sonata in Scriabin took up the Conservatoire appointment as a means towards financial security in his newly married state; he was recommended by his old professor Safonov and accepted the post on the advice of his more recently acquired mentor, Belaiev.
Reminiscences by his pupils Margherita Morozova who later supported him financially and Maria Nemenova-Lunz, however, show him to have been a conscientious, imaginative and original teacher, covering repertoire from Bach to the contemporary music of the day and avoiding his own works. Like all great creative and recreative personalities, Scriabin must have been apt to inspire imitation in his pupils.
The Third Sonata is a large-scale, four-movement work. Within three years Scriabin was to complete his first two symphonies, and this Sonata is symphonic in its polyphony, long-sighted formal construction and thematic development, breadth of phrase and heroic, epic manner.

Heady stuff, or pretentious drivel, according to taste. Composers who issue programmes for their music often live to regret it—witness Berlioz and Richard Strauss. The mood of the first movement is heroically assertive; the simultaneous combination of themes is prominent in the development—a habit which was to grow on the composer in his later music. The end of the movement is strikingly inconclusive, leading the listener on to the second movement. This takes the place of a scherzo and trio, whose form it shares, but is more like a curiously hasty and uneasy march.
The trio dallies exquisitely, playing with little triplet figures. One passage shortly before the respite offered by the first major-key episode is particularly disturbed in expression: In the central episode, as mentioned earlier, Scriabin uses all his resources of counterpoint; rising by semitone steps, the build-up is truly symphonic, and the final restatement of the slow movement theme is an orchestral conception. The Fantaisie in B minor, Op 28 , is an interesting inclusion in this collection of sonatas: A popular work with Russian pianists—Scriabin is central to the Russian repertoire—its existence was forgotten by the composer.
The virtuosic style is close to that of the Third Sonata. Noticeable here are the touches of canonic treatment. But as he moved into the middle and later periods of his music his means of variation were to become both more subtle and more drastic. At the beginning of Scriabin was both a married family man with two daughters and a son and a master of late-Romantic composition, with three sonatas, three symphonies and a host of smaller pieces to his credit.
He had given up the Moscow professorship to concentrate on composition. But within a crisis was brewing on two fronts. This was to lead later to a deep involvement with Eastern mysticism. Romantically he was becoming attached to Tatyana Schloezer, whose acquaintance he had made in when she was fifteen. Corresponding to this upheaval in personal life is a transformation in musical language, shown clearly in the Sonata No 4, Op 30 For this work, too, Scriabin wrote a programme: It reflects the startling new philosophies he was imbibing:.
It does, however, contain a number of motifs which recur in his mental world: The motives in the poem are those of a dream. These notes are not the place for psycho-analysis of the dead—a notoriously open field—but if the symbols in the poem illuminate the music, so much the better. Harmony here is suspended, unresolved and floating and texture spare and luminous: The second movement, a sonata Allegro which follows without a break, brings more new sounds:
