Prokofiev: Piano Sonatas – Alexandra Silocea

Avie introduces the brilliant young Romanian pianist Alexandra Silocea who offers some of her signature repertoire on her debut recording: the first five piano sonatas of Prokofiev. Dubbed ‘Alexandra the Great’ by Gramophone, the twenty-six-year-old trained in Vienna and Paris, and is now resident in the UK.

‘This debut recording serves as a journey through my own musical path. The aim of recording the first five piano sonatas of Prokofiev together was to show all the facets of his musical personality, from Op. 1 to Op. 138, which is the revised version of Sonata No. 5, one of the last works he completed before his death in 1953. Each sonata is so different, so original, with such care for detail that whenever I play or listen to this music it is a revelation. My aim is to give an interpretation very faithful to the score, without unnecessary or superficial effects. I have experienced quite some resistance in programming these works but I hope that with this recording, listeners will discover more than they imagined. It is a ride through an impressive musical landscape and one where you should not be able to get off!’

Alexandra Silocea
