Nocturne in E flat

composer

 
Generally described as the ‘father of Russian music’ Mikhail Glinka was of course the composer of much else besides harp music, notably his two most well known operas Russlan and Ludmilla and A Life for the Tsar. The Nocturne was written for piano or harp in 1828 though not published until fifty years later in 1878, over twenty years after the composer’s death.

Généralement présenté comme le «père de la musique russe», Mikhail Glinka ne se limita naturellement pas à la musique pour harpe et composa notamment Russlan et Ludmilla et Une vie pour le tsar, ses deux plus célèbres opéras. Écrit pour piano ou harpe en 1828, le Nocturne ne fut publié qu’en 1878, soit plus de vingt ans après la mort de Glinka.

Mikhael Glinka wird im allgemeinen als „Vater der russischen Musik“ beschrieben und komponierte natürlich neben der Harfenmusik noch sehr viel mehr, etwa die beiden berühmten Opern Ruslan und Ludmila und Ein Leben für den Zaren. Das Nocturne entstand 1828 für Klavier oder Harfe, wurde jedoch erst 1878, also 50 Jahre später, herausgegeben, mehr als 20 Jahre nach dem Tod des Komponisten.
