Not being a Prokofiev expert and especially not on this Sonata which I believe is not so commonly performed. I have actually never heard it before but it is interpreted in the typical Prokofiev way. Prokofiev was a somewhat "bad boy" of Russian Music who did not stick to normal rules. The nickname spoke more for Czarist Russia's reactionary cultural climate than it did for Prokofiev's renegade tendencies, for at heart he was a traditionalist. Off-kilter harmonies, acerbic wit, and a motor-like rhythmic drive would always be key elements of his style. But his language was resolutely tonal, he worked within established forms, and as he matured he placed greater emphasis on his greatest natural gift, his melodic fecundity.

The recordings are up on the site.
