Acclaimed for his Prokofiev interpretations, Yefim Bronfman continues his complete cycle of the composer’s piano sonatas, showcasing the complex harmonies and simple lyricism of Sonata No. 9, and the neoclassical style of Sonata No. 5. Bronfman is joined by violinist Guy Braunstein for the composer’s two violin sonatas. One of Prokofiev’s finest works, the Violin Sonata No. 1 is noteworthy for its first movement’s muted scales, likened by Prokofiev to “wind in a graveyard.” Legendary violinist David Oistrakh convinced Prokofiev to transcribe his popular Flute Sonata for violin, and the resulting Violin Sonata No. 2 is one of his most popular works.
