Prokofiev’s music is characterized by their stylistic diversity, divided into four lines: the classical, the innovative, the motoric, and the lyrical-contemplative. The Second Violin Sonata shows both the classical and the lyrical lines, in the Scherzo also the motoric character. After having studied together, Kristi Gjezi and Louis Lancien now form a duo. Their very similar view of the music, especially the Russian works, inspired them to make this first joint recording. The deep mutual understanding on the musical level is easy to hear. Their performances are overall successful and contain some exciting moments.
