ArtistsPeter Donohoe (piano)
Peter Donohoe has always been closely attuned to Russian music and particularly that of Prokofiev and his recordings of the War Trilogy go back more than 30 years. He first recorded the 7th Sonata in 1982 for HMV then again in 1991 together with the two other 'War Sonatas' 6 and 8 for EMI. He believes that Prokofiev's Sonatas form one of the greatest piano solo cycles in the repertoire. 'Prokofiev was creating these major works throughout his career – all of them are major and some are still underrated and I am delighted to have had the chance of recording the complete cycle at last.'
"Donohoe's authoritative playing shines through in every work – he has lived with these pieces for a long time…In his hands every sonata makes a memorable impression, and the Fifth, with its cool classicality, receives one of the finest performances I have ever encountered on disc. A wonderful anthology." - Classical Ear (SOMMCD249, Vol.1)
