Alexander Nikolayevich Scriabin (6 January 1872 [O.S. 25 December 1871] – 27 April [O.S. 14 April] 1915) was a Russian composer and pianist. Scriabin was influenced by synesthesia, and associated colors with the various harmonic tones of his atonal scale, while his color-coded circle of fifths was also influenced by theosophy. He is considered by some to be the main Russian Symbolist composer.

Many of Scriabin’s works are written for the piano. The earliest pieces resemble Frédéric Chopin’s and include music in many forms that Chopin himself employed, such as the étude, the prelude, the nocturne, and the mazurka. Scriabin’s music gradually evolved over the course of his life, although the evolution was very rapid and especially brief when compared to most composers.

Despite the fact that these 24 Preludes Op. 11 were largely composed under the influence of Chopin, they still reveal Skrjabin’s distinctive personality.
