Prokofiev capped his series of three so-called ‘War Sonatas’ with a work of great expressive depth and emotional insight.

Moscow-born Yulianna Avdeeva, winner of the 2010 International Chopin Piano Competition, sets Prokofiev’s expansive score together with Chopin’s fiendishly difficult second Ballade and the second of Bach’s English Suites, more French in nature than its name implies.
