I own the After Scriabin disc on the Largo label, and greatly enjoy it. The music (as the title suggests) contains echoes of Scriabin (especially in Piano Sonata), along with melodies and harmonies influenced by Krein's Jewish heritage (a quite appealing mixture indeed). The Symphony no. 1, especially, is a real find-a powerful piece of music indeed! There are also various shorter pieces of his scattered across other discs. I should certainly like to hear more of his music, especially his Symphony no. 2 and other orchestral works.
