Synopsis

Amazon.com
Regardless of who was first to coin the term "Nocturne," 19th-century Irish composer John Field's Nocturnes, 15 of which are included here, stand side by side with those of Chopin for their consummate tunefulness, harmonic ingenuity, and pure pianistic resourcefulness. Fellow Irishman John O'Conor informs each of these gems with interpretive authenticity, unpretentious refinement, and elegance. --David Vernier

Ambient night music

"For anyone who enjoys Chopin's Nocturnes--especially quieter pieces like his Op. 9 No. 1--John Field's earlier and original nocturnes will not disappoint. Excellent sound quality and performance. Truly a desert island selection."
Hypnotizing in its beauty

"This album's simple grace and natural beauty continue to amaze me everytime I listen. It's the perfect soundtrack for so many moments too, when you want beautiful music that is accessible enough to keep people energized, but invisible enough to just be in the background pleasantly. We listen to it at dinnertime often, or in the morning, or in the setting sun."
