Notes & Reviews:

John Field, well known in 19th century Europe as a teacher and pianist, distinguished by a beautiful, intense cantabile, has his place in music history, but does not play a large role in contemporary concert life. There are recordings, above all of his concerti; there also exist a few recordings of his nocturnes. Ewa Poblocka, the winner of the 10th Fryderyk Chopin International Piano Competition, recorded a complete set of them for the first time in 1994, receiving a special medal from the Irish Government for them. This time, she has made the first complete recording of the twenty Nocturnes on a historical instrument- an 1838 Erard. Ewa Poblocka is one of Poland's most distinguished pianists. She studied at the Music Academy in Gdansk, and is the holder of top awards from piano competitions in Vercelli, Bordeaux and Warsaw.
