May I please ask a favor to someone who does not live in the U.S. - A woman friend of mine and I were discussing piano music and she mentioned that she attended a concert recently and heard something by Prokofiev that she liked a lot. My friend is not really into piano music and didn't bother to catch the name of the piece (she said it was multiple pieces, like five or more), but I told her maybe I could figure it out. Well, of course, I cannot really do that since Prokofiev wrote a lot of piano music. I'm guessing that she heard Sarcasms, or Visions Fugitives. Anyway, it dawned on me that I've never played ANY Prokofiev myself and I'm dying to play something new so I just now went on ISMLP and looked around on Prokofiev's page and found a little set that I'd like to take a look at; there are only three pieces in the set and the titles intrigue me. The problem is that I am unable to download the score because I'm in the U.S and ISMLP has it blocked for copyright reasons. So I'm wondering if someone else here who lives in another country could possibly download the set and then email to me? It's called "3 Pieces for Piano, Op. 59". I'd be very grateful!! :)

I don't have your email, but I think this should work:

Thank you so much, Andrew. :D I hope you don't mind, but I deleted the link you provided, but not before I downloaded the file :wink: .
Also, for future reference, and just in case, my email address is connected to the email bubble at the bottom of the window.
And now I am going to happily run right over to my piano and look at this new music. :D :D :D

Prokofiev is one of my favourite composers! I'm sure that you will enjoy your stay on the bench studying through his work(s)! :)

And the Sonatas are amazing works (favourite ones are No.2 and No. 8 over here!). I'm glad you were able to find the score... I will PM you with some details...
