One of Scriabin's most well-known etudes, which I played for my piano diploma exam, along with Chopin's winter wind and Rach prelude Op.23 No.5. This was recorded on a Yamaha C5!

Hope you like it.

Fantastic. I do like it, what a question... Congratulations for your pianist diploma. The sound of the Yamaha grand is great. I have not played much of Scriabin's work so far, only the etude Op. 2 No.1 and the very short Prelude Op 2 No 2 but your recording got me interested. Maybe I will try the D sharp minor Etude as well some time later this year. Funny key signature... I wonder what the sheet music looks like. If my counting is correct, it should have 9 sharps, correct? When you played this, did you really "think" in d# minor or was your mind rather set on eb minor as far as touching the keys is concerned?

...correction, only 6 sharps. D# major would have nine. I have found the score on IMSLP. Does not look too complicated but involves quite some inconvenient jumping around with the left hand.

Nice job, KawaiDesu!

Pianist685, I played this piece a while ago, and you're correct, it's not too complicated, as long as you're not too tense with repeated octaves. Some of the left hand jumping in the beginning you can actually substitute with the right hand (if you don't care about being a purist), although the left hand jumping in the climax is unavoidable and can be a bit tricky.

@Pianist685, Thanks! I was always thinking in D# minor - I feel it is much easier that way as when you look at the score the notes always have sharps, and so when I practise I always think of them as sharps.
