“Two of the works violinist Jameson Cooper and pianist Ketevan Badridze perform on their superb new Prokofiev disc originated in versions featuring voice (what became Five Melodies, Op 35bis) and flute (Violin Sonata No. 2 in D, Op. 94bis)… Cooper treats the lyrical lines [in Violin Sonata No. 2] with loving sensitivity and manages the tricky feats as if they are natural extensions of his nimble artistry. In the Five Melodies, his sweetness of tone and seamless phrasing are reminders of the music’s beginnings as vocalizes… [Violin Sonata No. 1] is a deeply affecting score that Cooper and Badridze, a pianist of bold accomplishment, shape as a series of somber and reflective scenes…”
