Complete Nocturnes

Stefan Irmer, piano

Changing Times

Gabriel Fauré was plagued by deafness when he composed his Nocturne No. 13, his very last piano piece. Here it forms the conclusion and offers a retrospective glance back at a developmental process extending over five decades – all interpreted here by Stefan Irmer on a voluminous Steinway grand piano from 1901 and with the sovereign style that has become his hallmark. The French composer’s character pieces reflect in exemplary fashion the transition from late romanticism to the modern era.

Stylistic Transition

Instead of ordering the nocturnes chronologically, Stefan Irmer has deliberately juxtaposed pieces from the romantic world of the Paris salons and late works already clearly verging on the limits of tonality. The result is a colorful and most highly varied comparative program featuring works from fifty full years in Fauré’s life.

Finishing Touch

With his solo pieces for piano Gabriel Fauré quickly left behind him the tradition represented by John Field or Frédéric Chopin. He developed an entirely different layer in this special musical form – far from nocturnal reveries toward highly impassioned and lyrical compositions. One should just listen, for example, to the Nocturne No. 6, with its furious concluding arpeggios at the same time.
