Left incomplete at the composer’s death, the Sonata for Solo Cello proved to be the last piece that Prokofiev began, in 1952. The Sonata was premiered in Moscow by Natalia Gutman in 1972, in a version elaborated by musicologist Vladimir Blok, but on this recording Gabriel Schwabe plays the piece essentially as Prokofiev left it. This digital single complements Schwabe’s album Russian Ballads, accompanied by pianist Roland Pöntinen (8.574377).
