Amazed to learn that the 19th century writer, Boris Pasternak (Writer of Dr. Zhivago), aspired first to be a composer and was close with Scriabin and Rachmaninoff.

Here is his piano sonata.....no mean feat..

Well that was a surprise! Thanks for posting it. Interesting combination of talents.

Composers manufacture a product that is universally deemed superfluous—at least until their music enters public consciousness, at which point people begin to say that they could not live without it.

Pasternak's two Intermezzi (1906), eb minor and g# minor are both very Scriabinesque. The second one is especially beautiful.

This seems to show why the concept of the Renaissance Man is dead. After the Renaissance, the world became place for specialists only. If you try to master more than one field, you never become dominant in either.

Not bad but not very good

Just curious as to how you could be composing an opus 71 and an opus 5 simultaneously

There is no sequence discrimination in Opus number. So Op. 5 is not include my first set of composition's. My first set of composition's include in Op. 24. I cant indicate it in my signature due to limit.
