Sergei Prokofiev: Piano Sonatas Nos. 1-4: Opp. 1, 14, 28, and 29 by Sergei Prokofiev
Abounding in the qualities Prokofiev considered the principal elements of his art (classicism, innovation, rhythmic vitality, lyricism, and sardonic humor), this collection features the dramatic and romantic Sonata No. 1 in F minor, Op. 1; Sonata No. 2 in D minor, Op. 14, a masterpiece in four movements; Sonata No. 3 in A minor, Op. 28, a brilliant 7-minute score; and Sonata No. 4 in C minor, Op. 29, a complex, exhilarating three-movement work considered vintage Prokofiev. Selected from authoritative editions.
