Aleksandr Nikolayevich Scriabin (1872 – 1915). Known for his brilliantly unorthodox piano writing, Aleksandr Scriabin was interested for many years in using music to convey theosophical and mystical ideas. His love life was intimately connected with his composition; many of his piano pieces were written during his courtship of and marriage to the pianist Vera Isakovich. He later abandoned her and began a relationship with Tatiana Schloezer, who wrote program notes for many of his orchestral pieces.
