In the summer of 1891, Scriabin, having exercised too much, wounded his right hand. For this reason he had to work only his left hand, for which he wrote in 1894 his Prelude and Nocturne op. 9. The two coins were published the following year and quickly enjoyed great consideration. In 1906, they were even so popular in the United States, that Scriabin reported from New York: "It turned out that the local publisher has reprinted my Nocturne for the left hand and that thousands of copies are already sold [ ...] My popularity is huge! "
