Amazed to learn that the 19th century writer, Boris Pasternak (Writer of Dr. Zhivago), aspired first to be a composer and was close with Scriabin and Rachmaninoff.

Here is his piano sonata.....no mean feat..

Well that was a surprise! Thanks for posting it. Interesting combination of talents.

Pasternak's two Intermezzi (1906), eb minor and g# minor are both very Scriabinesque. The second one is especially beautiful.

This seems to show why the concept of the Renaissance Man is dead. After the Renaissance, the world became place for specialists only. If you try to master more than one field, you never become dominant in either.

There is no sequence discrimination in Opus number. So Op. 5 is not include my first set of composition's. My first set of composition's include in Op. 24. I cant indicate it in my signature due to limit.
