The Flute Sonata in D, Op. 94, was a musical work that was composed by Sergei Prokofiev in 1943. It was initially made for flute and piano, but a later version of the piece used a violin instead of a flute. The piece contains four different movements.
The Flute Sonata in D was completed in the summer of 1943. At that same time, Prokofiev was working on music for "Ivan the terrible". The flute sonata in D was first performed in Moscow, Russia on December 7, 1943 by Nicolai Kharkovsky (flute) and Sviatoslav Richter (piano). It was later transcribed for violin in 1944, by the composer with the help of violinist David Oistrakh, as Op. 94a. The violin version was first performed by David Oistrakh (violin) and Lev Oborin, Piano, on June 17, 1944.
