From Perotin to Prokofiev (and beyond), performed by Caruso to Khatia, it's all here.

I don't deny that Scriabin adhered to a philosophy, but (as I mentioned in my previous post). . .

. . . there are too many other aspects of his life which make it difficult for me to believe that his music doesn't have an erotic component to it. You're not necessarily wrong to concentrate on the philosophical connotations and meanings of his music, but I daresay that most writers and musicians perceive the erotic component too. OTOH, I don't know of any legitimate scholarly or popular writer who has tried to make the case that Scriabin was "sick in the head". (Stanchinsky. . . well, that's another story.)

May I ask who (if anyone) has influenced you in your ascetic view of the composer?
