The son of Alexander Scriabin, Julian (1908-1919) was a child prodigy and showed remarkable promise as a composer. His four preludes written when he was just 11 indicate his father's influence, particularly the transition phase from the middle to late period (Op. 50s). Some scholars doubt these complex preludes are written by Julian, but are rather unpublished works his father probably composed in 1907. Despite the doubt surrounding their authorship, these four preludes are potent and mature miniatures, which, if truly composed by an 11 year old, must leave us in awe and wonder. Julian drowned in a boating accident and we can only imagine what this young composer might have created had he lived longer.
