Format: Audio CD
I originally bought this as a double cassette, and played it to death, it was my first real introduction to Chopin's twilight world of the Nocturnes, one after another i was mesmerized by their consistent beauty, not a dud among them, Rev is an underestimated Pianist, she doesn't have the big profile or fame about her, but neither does she have a big ego either, she just quietly lets Chopin do the talking, it's very disarming, and it suites these Nocturnes, the less you make "universal statements" about them, the more universal they become!, the low key approach lets this music creep up into your heart unawares, this is my favourite set of Nocturnes, now that's really saying something considering the competition.

All of these Nocturnes were so beautiful, and i'd like to give my feelings on 3 that i found especially wonderful,

Nocturne 8 - Probably my favourite Chopin Nocturne, there's a gently rolling and mesmerizing repetition in the left hand, very beautiful, it ebbs and flows, in speed and volume, it's the foundation over which the right hand plays the melody and sings its heart out, the key is developing a real intensity, and Rev really does that, she really hits the coda, as the Nocturne descends into the night.

Nocturne 10 - A nice hesitant start, so when the second part of the melody is played just a touch faster, it gives a sense of momentum, and Rev does indeed gradually speed things up ever so imperceptibly, i like her central agitated section, where she gradually turns the angry screws tighter, so when the "release" back to the original melody comes, wow what a release of tension it is!.

Beautiful rendition 24 April 2014
By tyhee88 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Livia Rev was born in Hungary in 1916, which would have made her about 72 when she recorded these works in September, 1988 for Hyperion.

Some may wish for a more dynamic performance, but I'm not among them. In Lev's hands these nocturnes are simply beautiful, without idiosyncrasy or overstatement and with excellent recorded sound to match.

A masterpiece 23 Jun. 2000
By Mark Leader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Every song strikes a mood upon the room where you play it. The album includes the song from the advert for breathe.com, which is simply breathtaking. It is a cd which has not left my cd player, and is the perfect beckground for everyday life. My single critisism is that there is not enough change in mood, songs remain at one level, and do not attempt to try something different, however, what the selection succeeds in is creating a cd which has the ability to send the listener into a dream world track after track, i recommend this highly

Highly recommended...but out of print 27 Oct. 2006
By dm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Sad to see great CDs out of print. Seow, who apparently was a multi-award winning pianist (have to admit that I've never heard of him), plays beautifully on these pieces, especially the Gymnopedies (sp?).

Many people have tackled these pieces; I don't think you'll be disappointed with this recording (if you can find it!)
