Complete editions of Scriabin are exceedingly rare, even during the age of the CD glut. Piers Lane has previously recorded the complete Etudes, and this 2-CD set is a welcome addition to the catalogue.
Lane is more than up to the task technically and musically. Scriabin's often treacherous left-hand writing is played with clarity and color, and Lane's phrasing is natural sounding. What Lane lacks is the last ounce of temperament, which this music requires in abundance. The diabolical quality which Horowitz and Gavrilov bring to some of these pieces is missing. However, this is a fine set of the Preludes, which range in mood from Chopinesque to apocalyptic.
Recorded sound is a bit too reverberant, but acceptable.

Excellent performance April 5 2006
By J. A. Bradley - Published on Amazon.com
As an amateur pianist of moderate+ ability, I have often struggled with many of the Scriabin preludes, both from a technical and an interpretive viewpoint. However, I always found them worth the effort. Unfortunately, there haven't been too many recordings of these (other than the op. 11, of which I have very good LPs of Ruth Laredo and Vladamir Horowitz), so I was entirely on my own for the later pieces.

How wonderful it was to find this recording of the complete preludes! I must disagree with the earlier reviewer that Lane is lacking; I thought these were fine performances (I can also highly recommend his recording of the complete etudes).

Complete Preludes for Piano Jan. 27 2012
By Bjorn Viberg - Published on Amazon.com
Complete Preludes for Piano is a Hyperion Records recording from 2000 starring pianist Piers Lane. Mr Lane plays with intense passion and I feel that he truly understands the music of Scriabin. Simon Nicholls has written the music notes and also included is a short biography of Mr. Lane. A very beautiful painting is on the cover. A very good choice. A very enjoyable recording indeed. I loved it. Highly recommended. 5/5.

Boring and lacking the passion Sept. 14 2005
By Gideon Pisanty - Published on Amazon.com
I listened to the beautiful set of the Op. 11 preludes, and what a disappointment! Lane simply loses it all. He has no feeling for the passion inherent in this music of a genius.
