Consisting of five miniatures, the Sarcasms Op. 17 was composed in 1912-1914 and was one of Prokofiev’s early pieces during his years at the St. Petersburg Conservatory (1904-1914). His years in the conservatory helped him to establish his early style, which highly resembled that of his predecessors, romanticists Scriabin and Rachmaninoff, at the beginning of his career. Later on, as he got in touch with more and more avant-garde music and modernist artistic ideas, he began to forge his own modernist path. Sarcasms mark the turning point in his search for a new musical language, in which his exploration of the limits of modernism was taken to its extreme. Each of the five pieces has a different character, projecting different dramatic emotions.
