Nocturnes represent quiet and meditative night music. Typically found in nocturnes are lyrical melodic lines, beautiful harmonies, and left-hand arpeggiated accompaniment patterns. Each nocturne in this collection has these qualities along with their own unique character, mood, and sophisticated sound. The pieces are meant to encourage students to better understand the beauty and elegance of the Romantic-period style. Similar in style and form to those of Fréderic Chopin, these technically accessible nocturnes are suitable for student recitals and competitions.
Book 1 contains the first 8 of 14 nocturnes for early intermediate to intermediate pianists. Titles: Nocturne No. 1 in C Major * Nocturne No. 2 in E Minor * Nocturne No. 3 in F Major * Nocturne No. 4 in D Minor * Nocturne No. 5 in G Major * Nocturne No. 6 in A Minor * Nocturne No. 7 in G Minor * Nocturne No. 8 in D Major.
