Sonatas and Interludes is a cycle of twenty pieces for prepared piano by American avant-garde composer John Cage (1912–1992). It was composed in 1946–48, shortly after Cage's introduction to Indian philosophy and the teachings of art historian Ananda K. Coomaraswamy, both of which became major influences on the composer's later work. Significantly more complex than his other works for prepared piano, Sonatas and Interludes is generally recognized as one of Cage's finest achievements.

The "Sonatas and Interludes", which make up a big part of Cage's prepared piano work, are not grand sonatas in the tradition of Beethoven or Brahms, which seem to go on for days, but more after the fashion of the 555 keyboard sonatas of Domenico Scarlatti - single movements, in binary or rudimentary sonata-allegro form. Interest revived in the 1970s, and several performers tackled the Sonatas, each in their own way, until 1994, when Philipp Vandré released a recording using the same model of piano as Cage had originally composed the pieces on. (Piano preparations, even meticulously applied, will sound different on different pianos. When I tell them John Cage, the reaction becomes amazement that his music isn't some dry, inscrutable academic exercise but it's more like Mozart crossed with a very pissed-off Jerry Lee Lewis, and coming right at them.
John Cage, Morton Feldman, and any less Christian Wolff, are composers who are loved also by people not accustomed to ry music. Their series devoted to Cage (50 volumes) and Feldman (a bit more) are references for the music lovers. The Piano Works 2. Stephen Clarke. Vo. 4: sonatas & interludes for PR.
