About Sergey Prokofiev's Four Pieces
Prokofiev's first four opus numbers were attached to solo piano works, showcasing the composer's unique technical skills at the instrument. Although this Op. 4 set wasn't published until 1911, its composition dates to 1908, shortly after the Op. 1 Sonata, making it among the earliest works whose publication was sanctioned by the composer. Nr 4, "Diabolic Suggestion", is one of the most effective and popular display pieces of Prokofiev's early years.
