Podcast: John Field’s Piano Concertos Nos. 2 and 7 + Piano Sonata No. 4
August 12, 2016
The pianist and composer John Field certainly didn’t let the grass grow under his feet. He was born in Dublin, spent time in Bath and London, performed before Haydn, sustained a long European association with Clementi, then took Russian residency for a quarter of a century before spending his final years battling the illness that ultimately defeated him. Field’s immediately attractive music influenced such luminaries as Chopin and Liszt. Brimming with elegance, it stands endless repetition, as evidenced in this latest podcast by Raymond Bisha.
