LOVE IN BLOOD
Compare with the other two concerts of this project, the program that I choose for this
concert “Love in blood” is more lyrical and romantic.
From the piano sonata no.1 which shows the fire inside young man’s heart, to the
mysterious piano sonata no.4 narrating the restraint and introspective feeling hiding in
the heart, to the dreamy poetic piano sonata no.5 and to the most violent and ecstatic
love in the suite “Romeo and Juliet”, these piano works don’t have the brutal force,
mechanical rhythm or ironic character that usually shows in Prokofiev’s music. Instead,
they are all very intimate and tender, but inside the extremely beautiful zigzagging
melodies still can feel the varied and rich emotional power – like the different side of
love, which could remind us the feeling that we’ve been experienced in the life and
could also touch the part that we didn’t even know that exist inside our heart.
What is love? What is hate? What makes our life meaningful and valuable?
Let us exploring the answers in the lyrical musical works of S.Prokofiev!
