YSM pianists survey Prokofiev’s nine piano sonatas

The Yale School of Music presents all of the Prokofiev Piano Sonatas in two pairs of performances: December 5 and 7 at 8 pm at Morse Recital Hall in Sprague Hall, and December 11 at 5:30 pm and 8:30 pm in Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall.

The concerts, which are presented by Yale in New York and the Horowitz Piano Series, feature performers selected in a competition open to all graduate-level piano students. The events mark the publication of a new performance edition of the sonatas, edited by faculty member and Prokofiev specialist Boris Berman.

The first program (Dec. 5 at 8 pm in New Haven, and Dec. 11 at 5:30 pm in New York) will frame the project by presenting the first and last of Prokofiev’s nine piano sonatas. Naomi Woo ’13MM will perform the Sonata No. 1 in F minor, Op. 1; Euntaek Kim ’13AD will play the Sonata No. 2 in D minor, Op. 14; and David Fung ’12MMA will perform the second version of the Sonata No. 5 in C major. The second half of the concert opens with the Sonata No. 9 in C major, Op. 103, performed by Esther Park ’12AD. The concert closes with the Sonata No. 4 in C minor, Op. 29, played by Scott MacIsaac ’14CERT. MORE
