In this third and final volume of his complete recording of the Prokofiev sonatas, Alexander Melnikov explores two highly contrasted facets of the young prodigy. The dazzling Sonatas Nos.1 and 3 sweep aside the codes of the period, unlike the more enigmatic and eminently subtle Sonata No.5, heard here in the revised version Prokofiev made in the last years of his life. In the coupling with the Visions fugitives, the Russian pianist realizes to perfection the mixture of brilliance and poetry that gives this cycle it's peculiar charm.
