Format: Audio CD
John Field is probably one of the most under-rated composers . Most classical music afficianados swoon over Chopin's nocturnes (justifiably so) , but I am surprised by the number of people who have never even heard of Field !Unlike Chopin , John Field does not wear his heart on his sleeve in these nocturnes , but to my mind they are far more superior .They are delicate & delectable without being maudlin (unlike Chopin)...listening to these nocturnes at night is like watching snowflakes fall on an arctic lake in the comfort of a heated cabin !If you like Chopin's nocturnes , you'll love these hidden gems !

Format: Audio CD
This double CD from Chandos features all 18 of the Nocturnes composed by John Field. Field was born in Dublin in 1782, became an apprentice to piano-maker and composer Muzio Clementi, was sent to St. Petersburg as a salesman, and decided to stay in Russia where he made his reputation as composer and pianist. Field was the first to use this term `nocturne' to describe such serene piano compositions. The form was then subsequently developed by Chopin in some 20 Nocturnes of his own. If you know any of Chopin's nocturnes, these by Field create the same atmosphere but are perhaps not quite as adventurous melodically or harmonically as their French successors. These performances by Irish pianist Micael O'Rourke certainly do justice to the set.

I highly recommend this recording! I heard Field's work for the first time not long ago and wanted to get my own recording. I had to pay a pretty penny for this collection (via Marketplace) but it was worth every cent!

What a great composer and what a great job Micael O'Rourke has done, as well!

I recommend this MP3 recording of Mr. Field's Nocturnes. Miceal O'Rourke performs the songs in a way most deserving. You are guaranteed to enjoy these renderings of Field's lovely compositions. Buy it and do what makes you the most happy while listening to it.
