Part one of the single-movement Second Piano Sonata (1924).

Sergei Protopopov (1893-1954) was a conductor, composer, and musicologist who taught at the Moscow Conservatory. He was relegated to obscurity along with the other Soviet Avant-Gardists for his "formalistic" and intensely expressionistic music. Protopopov was an advocate of the theoretical system developed by his mentor, Boleslav Yavorsky. Most of Protopopov's works (three piano sonatas and some vocal pieces) are influenced by Yavorsky's theories, which concern the use of modal rhythm and tritones. Suffice to say, Protopopov's three piano sonatas are based on Scriabin's late harmonic language. Composer and scholar, Larry Sitsky, says Protopopov's sonatas are "important milestones in the development of the large-scale piano repertoire [and] legitimate successors to Scriabin."
