Following her critically acclaimed coupling of the Britten & Barber Piano Concertos with the London Symphony Orchestra, Elizabeth Joy Roe enlightens the extraordinary world of John Field. John Field has been called the Father of the Nocturne, creating the form which Chopin perfected, but thus relegated to a footnote in musical history. This is the first recording of John Field's complete Nocturnes on Universal.

‘Roe’s playing is tender and graceful, with a delicate, songful touch, and she balances the various elements judiciously and always with attention to detail’ – BBC Music Magazine
