Editorial Reviews

Piano Sonata No. 6 in A major, Op. 82 (1940)
Piano Sonata No. 7 in B-flat major, Op. 83 (1942) (occasionally called the "Stalingrad")

After spending some time in the United States, then Germany and Paris, Prokofiev returned to Soviet Russia which he left after the revolution.

Sixteen years passed before he composed his next Sonata: number 6 in A major op.82. This work was going to be the first of a series of three to be called "The War Sonatas".

He cherished the idea of thinking about the Sonatas 6, 7 and 8 as a huge "sonata" in eleven movements. According to Myra Mendelssohn, Prokofiev got this idea when reading Romain Rolland on Beethoven.

Finished in 1942, the Sonata number 7 in B-flat major op.83 is the most popular of the three, while the last "War Sonata": N.8 in B-flat major, is the most complex.

The Piano Sonata No. 6 in A major, Op. 82 (1940) was first performed on April 8, 1940 in Moscow. The first performer other than the composer was Sviatoslav Richter. The young pianist relates: "I was astonished by the amazing clarity of style and the perfect construction of this music. I have never heard anything like this before. With a barbaric boldness the composer breaks with the romantic role models to give life to his music with the devastating urges of the twentieth century."

Completed in 1942, Piano Sonata No. 7 in B-flat major, Op. 83 is the most popular of Prokofiev's Sonatas. Shorter than the previous one, it is, nevertheless, analogous to it by its mixture of sheer anxiety, top rage and also meditative and lyrical sections.

The first movement does not have a key signature, the others do have E major and B flat major keys. The sonata was premiered in Moscow on January 18, 1943 by Sviatoslav Richter.
