We attended a piano/violin concert this afternoon and I’m truly thankful for the opportunity — in our small town — to go and hear such accomplished musicians play their fingers off to a small crowd. It was a remarkable performance and I liked the second sonata better than the first. I would even want to hear it again. But I don’t understand why someone would work so hard to learn to play the violin part of that first one. Overall, I just don’t understand Prokofiev. Those are my candid, philistine remarks.
