About this Recording

BRUBECK: Nocturnes

Dave Brubeck’s Nocturnes are small, lyrical pieces that can be played by children and savoured by adults. Longing, tenderness, and nostalgia are the predominant themes, linking them to Chopin’s nocturnes. Both composers explore the mystery and melancholy that take over after dark, the nocturne’s time to flower. As Brubeck himself writes in his liner notes, “...all of these pieces rise out of my personal life, and it is gratifying to hear them so splendidly recreated by the artistry of John Salmon”.

Brubeck, Dave
