Description

John Field (1782 - 1837) was, without doubt, one of the most important
composers of piano works in the early romantic period. His interesting
compositions have the softness of Chopin's masterpieces, the charm of
Mendelssohn's music combined with the naturalistic reminisces of the native
Ireland. Until this ARTS release, no other record company proposed a complete
edition of John Field's piano works which will offer in a few months Nocturnes,
Sonatas, Fantasias, Rondos, Variations and an amazing series of first-ever
recordings. This is one of the most interesting releases in the piano repertoire of
recent years and ARTS is proud to offer the recordings at their usual special
budget price.
