5.0 out of 5 stars John Field's Nocturnes, 14 Aug. 2012

This review is from: John Field: The Complete Nocturnes (Audio CD)
This double CD from Chandos features all 18 of the Nocturnes composed by John Field. Field was born in Dublin in 1782, became an apprentice to piano-maker and composer Muzio Clementi, was sent to St. Petersburg as a salesman, and decided to stay in Russia where he made his reputation as composer and pianist. Field was the first to use this term `nocturne' to describe such serene piano compositions. The form was then subsequently developed by Chopin in some 20 Nocturnes of his own. If you know any of Chopin's nocturnes, these by Field create the same atmosphere but are perhaps not quite as adventurous melodically or harmonically as their French successors. These performances by Irish pianist Micael O'Rourke certainly do justice to the set.
