About

Most of the pieces on this CD was written before Prokofiev became vexed by ideological discussions, and they reflect his quest among different cultures. With the exception of the solo sonata, they were composed in the West. Only after he settled in Moscow in 1936 did he experience the tragic fate of the great composers and writers under the Stalinist system, revered one day and maligned the next.

“There is something special about Prokofiev's music. You realise that each and every note is painstakingly put into place, which could appear to be almost distanced and mathematical, but nothing could be further from the truth, for his music touches the soul. The perfect balance between wonderful melodies and catching rhythmic passages is also something I find really fascinating.” - Rosanne Philippens

“Rosanne Philippens’s brilliantly focused, expressive sound is coupled with an inspired programme of virtuoso violinists of the Romantic period. An absolute joy from start to finish.” - BBC Music 5 stars (‘Dedications’)
