For Monica Alianello:

Thank you for introducing me the John Field catalog. I have been tryng to track new recordings of him. Yours posted Nov. 20 as noted:

20-11-2011 Monica Alianello Field 3:44 Nocturne No.15 in D minor

raises a question. From the information I have on Field's Nocturnes, Nocturne No. 13 is in D minor, and Nocturne No.15 is in C major. Are my sources wrong?

I find it hard to believe the breadth of you posted recordings. Your technique is beautiful. Keep 'em coming.

Thank you for the nice words, mikee! :)

In my book, no. 13 in is C Major, and in the contents at the beginning of the book, it says that no. 15 is in F Major, when in fact it is in D-minor. What is very weird to me, is that I changed the last chord in my recording of no. 15. My brain somehow thought there was a sharp sign in front of the F and so I played a nice, pretty D-major chord there, which of course changed the entire feel of the piece. It's supposed to be a D-minor chord which then makes the piece end in sadness. I really can't understand why I did that - strange things have been happening lately. But the good news is that because you brought my attention to no. 15, I found my mistake and have just now re-recorded the ending and corrected that last chord. So I'm thanking you big time!! :D

Thank you for clearing that up. It is interesting that so few of the recordings that I have found, recognize the Nocturne No. 15 as in D minor.
Before writing you, I did a quick check using Amazon Records web-site of available recordings of his Nocturnes. Of the six artists I found, five list the No. 15 as in C major (John O'Conor, Noel Lee, Miceal O'Rourke, Benjamin Frith, and Roberte Mamou). Only Pietro Spada lists it as D minor.
I will now listen to the revised No. 15. Thanks again.
Mikee

You got me worried that perhaps I was wrong so I did a little checking too. Turns out that editions vary as to their numbering system. Many of them list the D-minor nocturne (my no. 15) as no. 13. Therein lies our confusion! My book is a Kalmus edition.
