Sergey Prokofiev
Sonata 3
in A Minor, Op. 28

Within a classical sonata form, Prokofiev's shortest sonata is full of youthful energy and features a lot of pianistic pyrotechnics, but also beautifully lyrical passages.

Prokofiev Pyrotechnics

As Prokofiev did with many of his works, he “stop-started” the third sonata over a period of 10 years from 1907-1917. Compared to most of the other sonatas, the sonata is tiny and barely covers seven minutes. It’s written in a single, agitated movement and truly features the pianist’s bag of various tricks. In true Prokofiev style, about two minutes from the end, the music crashes to a stop and then starts up again with nearly inaudible triplets and builds again to the same frenzied pace of before.
