Eckhardt-Gramatté: 28 Alphabet & Character Pieces “From My Childhood” No. 28, Nocturne E93

Jennifer King, piano. Leaf Music LM2011

From the upcoming album O Mistress Moon: Canadian Edition, Nocturne E93 by Sophie Carmen Eckhardt-Gramatté is a childhood piece written around the age of 13 and later revised and expanded. There are influences of Chopin and Schumann but this is clearly the work of an expressive and independent artist. Jennifer King brings feelings of a sleepy fairytale unfolding into a chirpy middle section and then settles back into a blissful dream.
