For those who do not know, John Field invented Nocturnes as a musical form. However, Chopin popularized them. He studied Field's Nocturnes carefully and then he wrote his own. Both composers wrote some amazing Nocturnes. It's exciting having heard the entire collection of each and being able to see how much inspiration Chopin captured from Field. Chopin himself was also a true innovator. He brought the old Polish folk music forms of Mazurkas and Polonaises to piano, essentially creating two new classical musical forms.

For chose who do not know, Maria Szymanowska inspired Chopin, much more than John Field. Maria Szymanowska was polish composer of nocturnes, mazurkas, polonaises and waltz but at that time woman could not survive as musician and her works were forgotten by everybody.

I am glad that Chopin did some Field research.

@Benjamin Totallynotalt smaller-scale character piece that usually has the sense of a lyrical “nighttime“ serenade, hence the name. Loved this performance so much ❤️🎶

Don't forget about the ballades

The influence on Chopin is clear, it actually sounds like something Chopin himself would have composed... Field's nocturnes sound more "magical", perhaps because of the pedaling, while Chopin's sound more elegant and grieving.
