TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 13 September 2017
The nocturne, a singing melody over an arpeggio accompaniment, was conceived by the Irish composer John Field but its quality of the decorative filigree and poetic fantasy in Chopin's creative genius reached a pinnacle unmatched by any subsequent composer.

We listen here to Daniel Barenboim in an exquisite reading of Chopin's nocturnes of rare refinement and delicacy. He gives convincingly and masterly the character, hue and nuance of the thirteen nocturnes in the compilation: the easy flow of melody and introspective calm (Nocturnes Nos.1-4); the evocative character (Nocturnes Nos.5-9); the dark mood (Nocturnes Nos.10-11); the profound serenity (Nocturne No.12); and the evocative melancholy (Nocturne No.13), amazingly composed by Chopin at the tender age of seventeen.

Barenboim's thoughtful rendition of Chopin's Nocturnes is simply sublime, and the perfect CD to buy for somebody who likes classical music but is a bit confused about what to listen to, beyond Andre Rieu and Alfie Boe. The perfect antidote to a stressful day at work, slip it into the CD player and allow yourself to relax with a glass of something nice.

It is my favorite rendition of Nocturnes (and I have several), Barenboim at his best.
