5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Prokofiev "The War Sonatas"!!!, 26 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Prokofiev: The War Sonatas - Piano Sonatas 6,7 &8 (Audio CD)
I bought this Prokofiev CD after hearing very favourable feedback of pianist Denis Kozhukhin's performances of Prokofiev's piano concertos in Glasgow over the past two years. I wasn't able to make those performances myself but at least I have the consolation of listening to Denis's amazing playing of Prokofiev's Piano Sonatas 6,7 and 8. All three sonatas are known as the "War Sonatas" and are very affecting to listen to. Denis's playing is very striking and he gets powerful tones from his piano in all three sonatas. My favourite is Piano Sonata No.7, particulrly its very moving second movement, the Andante caloroso, but No.8 stands out for me as well with its poignant opening and reflective second movements. Of course it is Denis Kozhukhin's interpretation of these piano sonatas that make them sound so special.
