Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Field never viewed his works as finished; every time he performed them he added something new to them - inspired by the circumstances, the public, and the atmosphere of the moment. For this reason, some of his nocturnes have been transmitted in significantly different versions.

Stefan Irmer rises to this challenging piano adventure: employing musical means from our times, he continues Field's music, adding his own ideas to it, and influences from jazz and tango are also in evidence.

Field's teacher Muzio Clementi had discovered his fantastic and highly imaginative improvisational talent: the famous piano teacher and piano manufacturer presented his instruments to a well-do-do London clientele by having his talented young pupil let his imagination run wild on them.

Stefan Irmer, who has gained renown not only with his prize winning recordings of music by Rossini and Clementi. With John Field's nocturnes Irmer discovers a neglected sound world that begins to radiate with countless nuances on the "Manfred Bürki" Steinway of 1901.
