Stephane Ginsburgh (piano)
It was in the turbulent years of Stalin’s cultural purges and the German invasion of Russia that Sergei Prokofiev composed his three most important piano sonatas. They were for a long time interpreted as a reflection of the war, but their significance lies deeper than that.
There is no one better than the Prokofiev expert Stephane Ginsburgh to reveal this.
