Prokofiev: Sonatas for violin and piano 1 & 2




In stock



For their second CD on the ATMA label, violinist Jonathan Crow and pianist Paul Stewart dive into the world of Prokofiev’s chamber music. In 1938, after hearing a Handel violin sonata, Prokofiev decided to try composing in this musical genre which he had never before attempted, and began drafting his first violin sonata. The Sonata no. 2 for violin and piano in D major, op. 94 bis, is a transcription of a work originally written for flute.

The 2013-2014 season marks Canadian violinist Jonathan Crow’s third season as Concertmaster of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. He is a founding member of the New Orford String Quartet, a new project-based ensemble dedicated to the promotion of standard and Canadian string quartet repertoire.

Canadian pianist Paul Stewart launched his career in 1981 with a stunning performance of Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1. Since then he has appeared in concert throughout Canada, the United States (including Carnegie Hall, New York and the Kennedy Center, Washington), Mexico, South America, Europe, South Africa and Asia.
