Two sonatas, one a wayward child, one a haunting terror.
The extreme contrast between the Beethoven and Prokofiev is perhaps what I love most about this program. The Beethoven portrays elegance and delicacy while the Prokofiev is brooding and menacing. Prokofiev himself said, "It should sound in such a way that people should jump in their seat, and people will say 'Is he out of his mind?'".
