Composer

Notes & Reviews:

John Field was inventor of the Nocturne. That is all most people know about this remarkable and influential Irish composer. Admired by his contemporaries Hummel, Moscheles and Kalkbrenner, he also drew praise from Chopin and Schumann. 'Discovered' by Clementi in London in 1794, he was given a thorough musical education by the great Italian master, who quickly recognized the 11-year-old's talent. His seven concertos contain some of his most strikingly original and beautiful ideas. These are new recordings made in 2007/8. Each concerto is discussed in detail with references to leading Field scholarship. It is an important release for all enthusiasts of early-Romantic piano concertos, and students of the music of Chopin, Liszt and Schumann.
