In Memory of Gregg Nielson Chopin Nocturne #20 C Sharp Minor Valentina Lisitsa



From Valentina: “It is so hard to lose a friend, a best friend, a friend of many years, a friend with whom we shared so many fondest memories….I am pathetically wetting my keyboard with tears as I am typing it…but I know Gregg is now getting ready to play some golf in a place where the weather is always good, the grass is always emerald green, and he has already paid his dues for an eternal membership 🙂
I want to dedicate this Nocturne to the sweet memory of Gregg – and also to give solace Judy, his wife and my travel companion on so many adventures. Don’t judge harshly I learned and recorded this piece in one day. This is the very least I could do, a small token of love and friendship ….I just want to quote a tweet , yes – a tweet, from @CardinalDolan , the tweet that came the day Gregg was leaving us:
“We all go through Good Friday moments in our lives but remember: The cross didn’t have the last word. The Ressurection did” “
