Aleksandr Scriabin was a romantic composer in the 19th century. I will discuss his influences, his compositional style, and how they relate to his Etude in D-sharp Minor. Futhermore, I will explain what an etude is and its uses as a compositional form, as well as how Scriabin uses this form to his advantage. Finally, I will conclude the presentation with a performance of the piece in the Penn State School of Music Recital Hall.
