Scriabin: Orchestral Works / Segerstam, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic
This specially-priced (3 CDs for the price of 2) boxed set spans from Scriabin's first large-scale orchestral work, his Piano Concerto (1897), to Prometheus (1909-10), his last completed piece (which incidentally also features an important part for solo piano). It thus includes the lion's share of his orchestral output - excepting the unfinished, mythical Mysterium - and shows his development from a young man brought up on Chopin and Tchaikovsky into one of the most original composers the world has ever known.
