Musician's or Publisher's Notes
The first nocturne ("turmoil") opens with a
statement of materials and textures followed by a "development" leading to a
lullaby, a rest that changes into a pounding nightmare before collapsing into a
thick, rolling texture. Out of this
texture appears an ascending passage that soars to the piano's highest notes
and then drifts into a sweet chorale-like section before introducing the second
lullaby. The nocturne ends with a quit
reprise of the opening sounds.
I think a more appropriate title would be Pieces of a Nightmare. UGH. NO melodious content at all, just pure pianist pugilism. The piano sure file charges for assualt and battery.
LOL, I agree with Burtto. It actually scared me...
