The aim of the article is to supplement Józef Chominski's analyses of interrelationships between the compositional techniques of Scriabin and young Szymanowski by listing those of Scriabin's compositions which might have potentially provided the model and by establishing the actual extent of 'the Scriabin theme' in Szymanowski's work. The survey of the latter's writings and correspondence permits to state that the surviving sources seem to confirm that while adoption of Scriabin's motivic-thematic model occurred at the very beginning of the creative development of the Polish composer, the distancing of this idiom corresponds with the shaping of this truly individual musical language, which took place at the beginning of the 1920s. As far as the compositional technique is concerned, main features of the Scriabin theme model are defined, Szymanowski's early works referring to this model are listed and interpreted through the intertextual lens, perceived as a dialogue with existing repertoire.
