An eminent specialist of Chopin but also of the Prokofiev concertos, Abdel Rahman El Bacha is the ideal interpreter for these piano works, which range from the futurist strains of the Toccata op.11 (1912) to the ‘fleeting visions’ of op.22 (1917), by way of the Gavotte and Rigaudon of the Ten Pieces op.12 and the Sarcasms op. 17. Amid this diversity, the Sonata no.2 op.14 reverts to Classical models. Here on a single disc are all the solo piano works of the young Prokofiev’s last years in Russia.
