Scriabin decided to go to live in Lausanne with his pregnant wife Tatyana,[nb 1] since he found the place to be cheaper, quieter, and healthier, and only 7 hours away from Paris. Also, he had his music being printed there, as he had recently broken his long-term partnership with publisher M.P. Belaieff due to financial discrepancies.
