  • January 23, 2014 Overpriced Edition

    I normally highly recommend Boosey & Hawke editions but at close to $30 for one sonata I'm having a hard time recommending it. I recommend the Dover edition which includes all 7 sonatas. However if you have the money then of course this is an excellent edition. From a performance...

    perspective this work is very difficult. It is to be played very fast with a light touch. It is misleading to a lot of pianists who brush it off because it's one of Prokofiev's early sonatas. But it is one of his most beautiful.

  • August 29, 2009 Very, very good edition

    20 bucks is a bit expensive but this edition is basically just the notes. it includes everything prokofiev wrote in there without any extra editing. this is an urtext edition and i highly recommend it to any pianist of an advanced level.
