Three Nocturnes f0r Piano Solo

David Lewiston Sharpe


Note This group of three Nocturnes grew out of the last of set, which is a reworking of material from the second movement of my Piano Concerto No.1. The Concerto was premiered in 2002 by Andrew Zolinsky (piano) with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Nicholas Cleobury. The second Nocturne was next to be written (2010) and the first of the set appeared last, in 2015.
