Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

A whole generation before Chopin, John Field invented the nocturne as the quintessence of musical poetry in which vast dream landscapes spread out in the listener's imagination. The gifted pianist Field may be said to have reinvented his compositions during every performance and was perfectly justified in doing so: depending on the ambiance, audience, and mood of the moment, numerous versions of the same piece were produced, and Stefan Irmer's interpretation of these gems enables listeners to experience them in an especially personal way.

On Vol. 2 of his complete recording of Field's nocturnes, Irmer brings together different versions of one and the same nocturne. The great difference between the two versions of No. 10 may possibly explain why this piece has not been included in any of the editions in use today. The Nocturne in C major No. 9 is also absent from most anthologies - very unjustly so, as Irmer's renderings of these two musical treasures demonstrate.
