    Default Anyone into Chopin's nocturnes?

    I always loved solo pianos, and what is better for nights than a nocturne, which was made for the night? Any other opinions people?

    Ms. Huppmann can play, but there have been other recent Chopin Nocturnes threads as you continue to post separate threads on the most beautiful pianists you can find.

    Here's the biggest thread
    Chopin's Nocturnes

    And here's one I started about Nocturnes in general, not just Chopin, because other composers wrote some wonderful Nocturnes as well.

    I am glad you like Chopin Nocturnes. So much that you have three threads on it. Go on and enjoy!

    I have those by Peter Schmalfuss, Nikita Magaloff, and Abbey Simon. Plus I have heard quite a number of others. They are all good.
    I don't live in the past,
    there's no future in it.

    Yes, you always post unheard of pianists. Is there some reason you avoid Arrau, Gilels, Richter, Horowitz, Argerich, Pollini, Gould, Perahia et al? Are they not pretty enough? Have you not heard of them?

    I really love Chopin's Nocturnes. I have his complete Nocturnes by these 5 pianists.
    Moravec, Pires, Rubinstein, Friere and Ashkenazy.

    Some of his Nocturnes are on quite a few other recordings by a variety of pianists in my collection.

    I also love the Nocturnes. I prefer the maturity of an older Arrau's interpretation above all others.

    Pollini's Recording is pretty great.
