Sonata no. 1 in F minor, opus 80, for violin and piano by Sergey Prokofiev( )

23 editions published between 1947 and 1951 in 3 languages and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prokofiev began work on the Violin Sonata No 1 in F minor, Op 80, in 1938. Significantly, unlike Romeo and Juliet and the Second Violin Concerto, none of its themes was composed before Prokofiev's return to the Soviet Union; rather, one senses that he drew his inspiration from the uncharacteristically dark wells of fear, despair and bereavement which were the lot of Prokofiev and his contemporaries under Stalin's Great Terror. Prokofiev put the Sonata to one side to score Eisenstein's film Alexander Nevsky. With further interruptions posed by the Second World War and other compositional projects, Prokofiev did not resume work on the Sonata until 1943; even then, he confessed to his friend Nikolay Myaskovsky, he found the work 'difficult', and apparently laid it aside once more to compose his Fifth Symphony. Indeed, even before he resumed work on the F minor Sonata he completed his Violin Sonata No 2 in D major in 1944. It seems that working on that Second Sonata, essentially a transcription of the Flute Sonata, Op 94 (composed in 1943), undertaken with the help of David Oistrakh, finally spurred Prokofiev to complete the dark F minor Sonata. It seems indeed significant that when Prokofiev resumed the work in 1943, his revisions to the first movement included the addition of those rushing scalic passages, marked freddo, which hitherto had not existed in the work. In the final year or so of his life, Prokofiev drew up an annotated list of his compositions; significantly, in writing of his F minor Sonata, Prokofiev elaborated on Rubinstein's original description by referring to 'an abandoned graveyard', which itself suggests he had in mind deaths less immediate than the obvious casualties of war when he completed the work in the summer of 1946. - Daniel Jaffé at hyperion-records.co.uk
