Description: This Ukrainian pianist-composer was inspired by Scriabin. This album reveals a composer deserving of wider attention. Kosenko’s Études, Op. 8 brim with a wealth of ideas, encompassing the chromatic fluidity and shifting colors that show Scriabin’s influence with other stylistic traits ranging from full-blooded Romanticism to jazz. One prior recording, on Centaur from 2015, exists (11R057). Igor Gryshyn (piano).
