Sergei Prokofiev: Sonata No. 6 In A Major Op. 82 With Alexander Melnikov On Piano

An alternative Romantic style

Despite some controversial early compositions, Serge Prokofiev quickly established himself as one of the foremost composers of the Romantic period. This work begins with an atonal melody atop of chords that beat out a marching rhythm underneath. When the work moves to the next part, a slower and equally atonal melody appears under more crashing chords. Hear the Russian great at work.
