FIELD, J.: Piano Concerto No. 7 / Irish Concerto / Piano Sonata No. 4 (Frith, Northern Sinfonia, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Haslam, Mogrelia)

Dublin-born prodigy John Field enjoyed a wide reputation and great popularity. He was renowned as a soloist for his delicacy of nuance and as a composer for his cultivation of that most poetic of forms, the nocturne. His Piano Concertos were eagerly anticipated and the première of the Concerto No. 7 in Paris on Christmas Day 1832 was attended by both Chopin and Liszt. Ingeniously structured in two movements, its Rondo finale evokes the ballroom and Russia in a series of constant contrasts. The Irish Concerto is a reworking of the first movement of Field’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in A flat major. Piano Concertos No. 1–6 can be heard on 8.553770, 8.553771 and 8.574221.
