Concert

A haunting, chilling masterpiece, Prokofiev’s Sonata No.1 in F Minor for Violin and Piano, op.80 conveys the dread and despair of living in Stalin’s Soviet Union. Prokofiev compared the unforgettable whispering scale passages to “…wind in an abandoned graveyard.” Bruce Adolphe examines Prokofiev’s particular musical vocabulary in search of the composer’s dark poetic voice.

Work featured in performance on November 13, 2022.
