There are two versions of Sonata No. The first version is Op. This version was not well-received by critics or the audience who, as Prokofiev remarked, "received it with restraint. The composer began revisions to the original sonata inrewriting a number of sections; however, the main themes and structure of the work remained unchanged.
The rejection of this sonata by its first audiences may have to do with somewhat rigid formalism, and what musicologist Israel Nestyev describes as a "cold speculation" replacing the intimacy and verve of Prokofiev's Andantino - Sergei Prokofiev - Gyorgy Sandor* - Complete Solo Piano Music Volume I solo piano works.
Supporters of this work take a different viewinsisting that since Prokofiev returned to it late in life, the sonata must have been very important to him. It seems that Sunlight (Radio) - Bobby Ewing - Sunlight second version of the sonata is a return to an earlier esthetic, or rather is simply more true to Prokofiev's ultimately lyrical style.
The Andantino - Sergei Prokofiev - Gyorgy Sandor* - Complete Solo Piano Music Volume I version, as pianist Murray McLachlan has suggested, was closely in tune with contemporary trends in Paris, circa It is dissonant and full of sharp contrasts, juxtaposing percussive passages with lyrical ones.
The second version, on the other hand, pervasively emphasizes the lyrical, with more gentle transitions between contrasting material. It is not as texturally spare as its predecessor, with softer, thicker harmonies. The second version of the Fifth Piano Sonata was one of a number of pieces Prokofiev either revised, planned to revise, or projected but failed to realize in the final years of this life.
