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.
