Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Sergei Prokofiev's Piano Sonata No. 4 in C minor, Op. 29 (1917) is a sonata composed for solo piano. It was first performed by the composer on April 17, 1918, in Petrograd. The work was dedicated to Prokoviev's good friend Maximilian Schmidthof, whose suicide in 1913 shocked and saddened the composer. In his notes accompanying the full set of recordings of Prokofiev's sonatas by Boris Berman, David Fanning states the following: Whether the restrained, even brooding quality of much of the Fourth Sonata relates in any direct way to Schmidthof's death is uncertain, but it is certainly striking that the first two movements both start gloomily in the piano's low register.show more
