These four sonatas abound in the qualities that Prokofiev himself considered the principal elements of his art: classicism, innovation, rhythmic vitality, lyricism, and sardonic humor. Reproduced from authoritative editions, this collection features Sonata No. 1 in F minor, Op. 1 (1909), a piece of dramatic and romantic beauty; Sonata No. 2 in D minor, Op. 14 (1912), the 21-year-old composer's masterpiece in four movements; Sonata No. 3 in A minor, Op. 28 (1917), a brilliant 7-minute score; and Sonata No. 4 in C minor, Op. 29 (1917), an unjustly neglected three-movement sonata considered vintage Prokofiev. Dover original compilation of four works from authoritative editions.

    I was interested in the 3rd Sonata. This one is of very poor quality. The print is barely legible. Some of the other Sonatas in the book look slightly better. I am not impressed and would not recommend the book to anyone.
