Sergei Prokofiev's Piano Sonata No. 6 in A major, Op. 82 (1940) is a sonata for solo piano, the first of the Three War Sonatas. The sonata was first performed on April 8, 1940 in Moscow. he first movement introduces the main motto, which is somewhat tonally unstable because it is introduced in both A major and A minor. Thus, it already introduces the uncertainty of the work. Only at the beginning the movement is somewhat tonal. The greater part of it is dominated by grinding dissonances and atonality, further increasing the despair of the work.show more
