A special place in the work of E. Mikhailov is taken by the music of A. Scriabin. One of the peaks of E. Mikhailov's "Scriabiniana" is the unique cycle "All of Scriabin's Sonatas", which he has repeatedly performed with success in Russia and abroad.

In 2015, at the invitation of the Columbia Artists company, a large concert tour of E. Mikhailov with the National Symphony Orchestra of Poland took place in the cities of the United States , where about 30 performances with the orchestra were given. The Herald Tribune newspaper wrote about Mikhailov's performance of Chopin's Concerto No. 1: “Mikhailov's skill was evident in the ease when he performed technically difficult passages - perfectly mastering evenness in passages and arpeggios. But much more impressive was his musical artistry and depth of performance, evident in the perfect phrasing, varied sonic palette, and the use of the rubato so beloved by Chopin ... The execution of the entire concerto was flexible, graceful and easy. "
In 2018, a concert tour of E. Mikhailov took place in the cities of Germany, where concerts by Schumann and Grieg for piano and orchestra were performed. The Wolfsburg Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper wrote about the performance of Schumann's concerto: “This work is characterized by an amazing synthesis of brilliant virtuosity and poetic power of expressiveness. This was remarkably conveyed by E. Mikhailov - with passionate, sincere expressiveness and perfect technique. The minimal movements of his hands and fingers helped him create a breathtaking rubato tempo. At the same time, there was always time left for subtly nuanced ink and the development of musical themes, which together marked the musical scale of the performer. The audience was grateful for such an outstanding interpretation with a standing ovation. "
