Berman, a member of Yale School of Music faculty since 1984, is a recognized authority on the music of Prokofiev. This bilingual (English-Chinese) publication contains various recommendations for performers. Berman compared the text of the sonatas with manuscripts and first editions, and corrected numerous errors that had been perpetuated by countless editions and recordings. This is the most reliable edition of Prokofiev's sonatas currently available.

The edition is sold only in China; buyers outside of China can contact the e-mail address in Hong Kong.
