Brigitte Engerer: Chopin’s 21 Nocturnes



French pianist Brigitte Engerer [1952–2012] plays the complete Nocturnes of Frédéric François Chopin [1810–1849; born Fryderyk Franciszek Chopin in Żelazowa Wola, Poland]. The nocturnes are 21 pieces for solo piano that Chopin wrote between 1827 and 1846. So, grab a cup of tea or coffee and allow these nocturnes to carry you along to another place of the mind and soothe your soul, to a place between wakefulness and sleep, to reverie. It’s classical soul music.
