For their second CD on the ATMA label, violinist Jonathan Crow and pianist Paul Stewart dive into the world of Prokofiev’s chamber music. In 1938, after hearing a Handel violin sonata, Prokofiev decided to try composing in this musical genre which he had never before attempted, and began drafting his first violin sonata. The Sonata no. 2 for violin and piano in D major, op. 94 bis, is a transcription of a work originally written for flute.
