John Field — Three Nocturnes

Edited by Edwin McLean

John Field preceded Chopin by a generation; in fact, he was a big influence on both Chopin and Liszt.

This new publication contains three of the more accessible nocturnes: No. 13 in D Minor, No. 5 in Bb Major, and No. 10 in E Minor. I edited them using early sources (editions by Franz Liszt and Louis Köhler).

I’ve recorded all three and posted a YouTube recording on my channel (edwinwmclean). The direct link is:

These Nocturnes are a great introduction for students who may not be quite ready for the Chopin Nocturnes, and they are masterpieces in their own right.
