BIOGRAPHY

CHOPIN Nocturnes

Nelson’s fifth solo release on the Alpha Classics label is a complete recording of the Nocturnes, a highpoint of Chopinesque poetry. These twenty-one miniatures accompanied Chopin over a good part of his life, for he composed them between 1827 and 1848. They are tributes to Italian bel canto, expressing reveries but also complexity of feeling and a profundity that far transcends their apparent simplicity.

Cadences
“What a phenomenal artist! Here the pianist is, once again, majestic: a versatility of touch capable of every nuance; a superb range of colours that allows him to vary the mood from here until eternity; refined lines in turn lyrical and modest… everything comes together to make this a recording of reference.”

Telerama 4*
“A double album as poetic and luminous as the full moon at night.”
