About this release

The Nocturne is a romantic piano piece in which a nocturnal, romantic atmosphere is expressed, where perfumed melodies float serenely over a calmly murmuring accompaniment.-Credit where credit is due: the inventor of the genre is the Irish composer John Field, who made fame as a pianist of his own works. It needed the genius of Chopin to perfect the genre to the highest artistic level: Chopin's Nocturnes are the archetypes of romantic piano music, and count among his best loved works.

Among the contemporaries we hear beautiful specimens of Kalkbrenner, Pleyel, Alkan and others.-Played on fortepianos from the time of composition like Broadwood, Pleyel and Érard pianos by expert Bart van Oort, who draws unexpected colours from these wonderful instruments, thus bringing us back to the salons of the 19th century
