EDITORS’ NOTES

The majority of Chopin’s 21 Nocturnes are essentially opera arias for the piano, their delicate, ornamented melodies underpinned by beautifully balanced accompaniments. François Dumont is one of few pianists who can make his instrument sing, weep, and laugh… all with the most exquisite restraint and steadfast control. Listen to the gentle, bel canto-inspired Op. 15 No. 1, the solemn Op. 72 No. 1, or the majestic posthumous C-sharp minor Nocturne and hear how Dumont elicits such depth of tone with refreshing absence of histrionics.
