Description

Time and again, Chopin succeeded in giving different piano music genres their own individual characters, whether etudes, preludes, waltzes, scherzi or nocturnes. The Irishman John Field had already composed over 20 nocturnes, which presumably greatlyinfluenced Chopin. The latter continued to develop the light, song-like piano writing and created works whose dreamy, longing atmosphere came to embody Chopin’s music. This volume contains the works that were published during Chopin’s lifetime aswell as ones which were only published posthumously, including the famous Lento con gran espressione in c sharp minor in two authentic versions.
