Frédéric Chopin: Nocturne op.9 no.1 in B-flat minor (by Vadim Chaimovich)



This is my 2009 studio recording of Chopin’s Nocturne op.9 no.1.
This nocturne is one of the most beautiful short pieces by the celebrated master of the “song of the night”, it has a rhythmic freedom that came to characterize Chopin’s later work…
Enjoy!

No, it should never be called a “recording session“. What recording sessions are usually about is being extra cautious, hitting all the right notes at the right time, clean, clinical 🙂 Since it was a self-funded “enterprise” operating on a shoestring budget , I could afford a little tiny bit more risk ;  -) Nothing to lose other than a house ( and thank you, friendly bank, for letting me borrow money against my house ). After such a decision playing Rach #3 is not really scary 🙂 Particularly with great London Symphony Orchestra, arguably the one of the very best on this planet. And with equally brave brilliant maestro Michael Francis – who at that time was “doubling” as a double-bass player at LSO , now heading skywards with a major conducting career:-)
