PERSONAL PROKOFIEV While Prokofiev’s first violin sonata was meant to sound “like wind in a cemetery”, the second, written as a flute sonata, is characterized more by cloudless skies and an absence of concerns. Both are dedicated to the legendary violinist, David Oistrakh, who played parts of the first sonata at Prokofiev’s funeral. On this recording, the Five Melodies serve as the transition between light and darkness. The work was originally a wordless vocalise written while Prokofiev was living in the USA. It was arranged for violin and piano during his years in Paris. REVIEWS «The distinguished Norwegian artists Elise Båtnes and Håvard Gimse offer a different perspective, but it is one that has firm stylistic grounding and a persuasive interpretative viewpoint of its own. [...] their playing has in general a sharper edge to the projection, which is by no means out of place in this music.» Geoffrey Norris – Gramophone, mai 2017 review_LWC1118_Gramophone.pdf
