In 1939, Prokofiev began work on his ‘War Sonatas’, which contain all the elements of his mature style, with the side-slipping harmonies, the romantic but never saccharine emotion of the Sixth, the violence and exhilaration of the Seventh Sonata and the more enigmatic moods of the Eighth. This work prefigures the calm, often serene character of the Ninth, from 1947: its dedicatee Sviatoslav Richter originally confessed to disappointment over its relative lack of virtuosity, but he came to appreciate its simplicity which is so characteristic of Prokofiev’s late style.
Dinara Klinton’s recording of Liszt’s Etudes d’execution transcendante won high praise from BBC Music Magazine (5 stars and Monthly Choice), Gramophone, Pianist and many other critics. She now makes her debut on Piano Classics with another monument of the virtuoso piano literature.
Born in Ukraine, Dinara Klinton became the first recipient of the prestigious Benjamin Britten Fellowship. Her music education began at the age of five in her native Kharkiv, and she graduated with highest honours from Moscow Central Music School, where she studied with Valery Piassetsky. She then attended the Tchaikovsky Moscow State Conservatoire, studying under Elisso Virsaladze, and earned her Master’s degree and Artist Diploma under the tuition of Dina Parakhina at the Royal College of Music, where she is presently Assistant Professor of Piano.
