Skrjabin's Tenth Sonata was composed at the same time as the two Sonatas Nos. 8 and 9 in winter 1912/13. It was probably finished at the latest in June 1913. According to Leonid Sabenejev's reminiscences Skrjabin had already performed parts of the sonata to friends in spring 1913; saying that “he had succeeded in simplifying the harmonies without destroying the Sonata's psychological complexity.” Following the first performance in Moscow; a reviewer wrote: “The Tenth Sonata must be counted amongst Skrjabin's most inspiring works [...] It is as if it were hewn out of a piece of granite: one can neither leave out a stroke nor add one – it is so strict and logical in its entirety.”
