Dave Brubeck’s Nocturnes are small, lyrical pieces that can be played by children and savoured by adults. Longing, tenderness, and nostalgia are the predominant themes, linking them to Chopin’s nocturnes. Both composers explore the mystery and melancholy that take over after dark, the nocturne’s time to flower. As Brubeck himself writes in his liner notes, “...all of these pieces rise out of my personal life, and it is gratifying to hear them so splendidly recreated by the artistry of John Salmon”.


Review By Michael Medved,Naxos,September 2006

One of the joys of the Labor Day holiday from work (on my radio show, we played a pre-recorded program about the myths and misunderstandings concerning World War II) is the ability to steal a few moments to listen to music-- and to go through the stack of new CD's I've recently acquired with eager anticipation, but with no time to savor them with proper concentration.
