Sonata No. 2 for Violin and Piano by Sergey Prokofiev

Russian composer Sergey Prokofiev’s (1891–1953) second violin sonata premiered as a sonata for flute and piano in 1943. The sonata is quite traditional in form, especially for a mid-20th century composition, in that it adheres to the classical four-movement structure. This includes a first movement in the eponymous sonata form, a fiery Scherzo, a lyrical Andante, and a virtuosic finale.
This recording is performed by violinist Gaëtane Prouvost and pianist Abdel Rahman El Bacha.

June 18 may be a first in the history of the John C. Hitt Library's Knowledge Commons.

Jake Quattrocchi proposed to Rachel Eller in the Commons, and to the delight of the crowd, Rachel said "Yes", followed by lots of applause and a roar of approval.

May the future be bright and happy for these "uKnight-ing" Knights!

Marcus Kilman retires from the UCF Libraries!

Posted on: Jun 5, 2014 @ 2:15:51 pm

It's hard to believe, but our wonderful head of Circulation Services is retiring!

Marcus Kilman has been at the UCF Libraries for 18 years. He has led Circulation Services, and worked in Reference, Access Services and at UCF's then-Brevard campus library (now Eastern Florida State College).

Thousands of UCF Knights have benefitted from his work to prepare for the Knowledge Commons, answering Reference questions, Chatting answers to students in Ask-A-Librarian, helping to initiate the Study Room Reservation System, and much more.

We will miss him very much but are so happy that he has been an important part of UCF.

Congratulations, Marcus!
