Description

Fingerings by Jan Ekier

From ca. 1828 until the last years of his life, Frédéric Chopin devoted himself again and again to the nocturne genre emerging at the beginning of the 19th century. As Romantic character pieces evoking, in particular, evening and night moods, they actually count among Chopin's most poetic piano works. Their popularity is correspondingly large - that is reason enough to compile a selection of the most popular and at the same time technically somewhat easier pieces.

The present pieces are ideal for pupils but also for piano-playing music lovers to immerse in the charming sound poems and, as already realized by Jan Kleczynski in 1866, to obtain a key 'to reveal the secrets of the other, even greater works of the master'.
