Musician's or Publisher's Notes
The second half of the 19th century was a period of very dynamic transformation of artistic languages. In this regard, Gabriel Fauré was a very important figure who embodied the evolution of late Romanticism to modern harmony, the essential link between Chopin and Debussy. Fauré’s music is intimate, almost secret, and the quintessence of elegancy and transparency.
The Three Nocturnes Op. 33 were written in 1883. These are pieces of very different character despite the ternary form inherited from Chopin and John Field. The first Nocturne, in the unusual key of E-flat minor has the widest development section and is the most interesting in terms of the harmonic language which will evolve in Faure’s late works.
