Prokofiev: The War Sonatas: Sonata in A Major, Op. 82; Sonata in B-flat Major, Op. 83; Sonata in B-flat Major, Op. 84
Another Meetup? Last minute? What the heck. I've got a ticket thanks to Corey who is also going. I checked and found tickets are still available so if any of you are free, why not invite you too? This is literature I may have heard, but I don't know it well. And what artist could possibly be better suited to perform them? BTW, Corey knows a lot about these sonatas, and I believe studied with Solzhenitsyn at a piano camp. Counting on him to guide me through these!

I hate war, but expect I'll enjoy these "war sonatas" composed during the Second World War, very much.
If any of you join us, I will, as usual, be standing at the Information Desk in the Lobby with my dopey "Classical Music Meetup" sign with the eighth notes.
