Musician's or Publisher's Notes

The rarely performed Notturno by Ottorino Respighi represents one of the finest gems in the piano literature.  More commonly known as an orchestral composer, Respighi’s     Nocturne follows the lineage of Field and Chopin, evoking nocturnal images, creatures, and fragrances in a rather optimistic and sincere take on this nightly genre.       Samuel Deason
