Henri Dutilleux: Piano Sonata (1948) Another original French piano work of the 20 century, although quite complex in structure, it's very easy to listen to. Reviewer, Tony Hayward, described it as "a brilliant, multi-layered work".
Nikolai Kapustin: Sonata no. 2, op. 54 (1989) Kapustin developed interests in both jazz and classical music. He fuses jazz into classical form. The result is classical works with jazz motifs. He has written twenty piano sonatas of which, no. 2 is the most popular. I highly recommend Nikolai Petrov's performance. It is easy to listen to and has some fantastic rhythms.
Prokofiev: Sonata no. 8 in B flat major ("War Sonata 3"), Op. 84 is Prokofiev's tour de force masterpiece from the war years. This is one of the most musically and technically challenging works in the 20th century repertoire.
