'A very welcome reissue indeed. Eloquent, unfailingly beautiful in tone and blessedly free of mannerism, Livia Rev combines in almost perfect balance the simplicity of utterance required of all great Chopin playing' (BBC Music Magazine)

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The E major Nocturne sounds rich and expressive with its melody sung by a mezzo-soprano rather than a higher voice. In the turbulent middle section the left hand plays a melodic role as well, with the harmonic ‘stuffing’ lying in the inner voices. The return of the calmer section brings with it a good deal of resignation – perhaps what Chopin was feeling at the time.
