Isn't the second mvt. just beautiful?  Actually, the whole sonata is, but some of the themes in the second are especially wonderous.

That's a very impressive feat to learn in 3 days one of Prokofiev's biggest sonatas.  I wonder how many hours that is-3 hours a day or 10 hours a day?

if I had to guess I'd say it's 24 hours a day for 3 days
or at least that's what it would take me to learn in 3 days I did it in 4 weeks at 2 hrs a day but 3 days that's insane

Yes, I agree with all.  It's a brilliant, brilliant work.  I worked on it for a few months about 5 years ago.  I didn't finish because I was working with a teacher I didn't like.  But it's such a cool piece.  The second movement is so beautiful.  The first movement is monumental; as is the last movement.  The middle section of the last movement is just so amazing how he brings in all these themes.  it's so fun to play.
