S. Prokofiev, Sonata in Re Magg. op. 94

This Sonata was written in Alma Ata during the painful years of the Second World War. Performed for the first time in 1943 by the flutist Charkovsky, “accompanied” on the piano by Sviatoslav Richter, the composer subsequently made a version for violin and piano, in collaboration with David Oistrakh. The piece still represents today an authentic masterpiece of the solo repertoire, due to the undisputed technical-instrumental standard and the excellence of the musical content.
