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 Frederic Chopin, these technically accessible nocturnes are suitable for student recitals and competitions.
Book 2 contains the last 6 of 14 nocturnes at the intermediate to late intermediate levels. Titles: Nocturne No. 9 in A Minor * Nocturne No. 10 in F Major * Nocturne No. 11 in D Major * Nocturne No. 12 in D-flat Major * Nocturne No. 13 in G Major * Nocturne No. 14 in F Minor.

    These were just published in 2018. Some composers' new works possess less magic than their previous ones. But not in this case! Truly gorgeous. These can be played quietly and unobtrusively or......if in the mood, get ready to emote!!! Really very pleased with both books 1 and 2 of...

    Dennis Alexander's new Nocturnes. Astoundingly beautiful.
