Notes & Reviews:

John Field was a remarkable pianist whose playing was marked by a particular delicacy of nuance in contrast to the contemporary fashion for technical virtuosity. As a composer he developed that very poetic form of piano music, the nocturne, and added to the concerto repertoire in the popular style of his time. Born in Dublin, he spent much of his life abroad, performing in the cultural capitals of Paris, London, Moscow and St. Petersburg.
