Lot 770: Influential composer and pianist (1871–1915) widely considered to be the main Russian symbolist composer. Scarce piano sheet music for Scriabin's Poeme Satanique, Op. 36, 10.5 x 13.25, eight pages, dated 1904, signed and inscribed on the title page in Cyrillic in black ink [translated], "To much-esteemed Fyodor Yulyevich Schloezer, yours faithfully, A. Scriabin." Printed by M. P. Belaieff of Leipzig. In fragile, very good condition. Fyodor Schloezer was the professor of the Moscow Conservatory and the father of Scriabin's second wife, Tatiana. Scriabin legally separated from his first wife after relocating to Switzerland in 1904, with the date of this music book coinciding with same period he began instructing Tatiana as his pupil. Given its date and familial inscription, Scriabin could have very well made the numerous pencil markings scattered throughout the sheet music as a guideline for his wife-to-be.
