Of 20th-century composers of concert music, Sergei Prokofiev (1891-1953) left pianists with one of the more substantial bodies of work in traditional showcase formats: five piano concertos and nine piano sonatas, along with suites and other short-form works for solo piano.

In two Jordan Hall concerts, January 28 and February 1, NEC piano students will celebrate Prokofiev's 125th anniversary with performances of all nine sonatas along with other solo piano works.
