 Surprisingly, there are only a few recordings available of these marvelous miniatures for the piano. If the word "miniature"chopin or "nocturne" summons up images of trifles or somnolence, then listening to these works will certainly change that. These are poetic utterances that run the gamut from the serene to the utmost impassioned outbursts. Very few are those listeners who will not be enthralled by them.
