The 13 Nocturnes constitute the first major cycle of Fauré’s work. They cover most of his output, from 1882 to 1921. They are only occasionally related to the characteristic form of Field’s or Chopin’s Nocturnes (ornate singing over an accompaniment of arpeggios), but they are imbued with the same quiet, sorrowful evening poetry. Éric Heidsieck, very young at the time of this recording, imposed himself by a kind of instinct in these magnificent poems that are the nocturnes of Fauré. The French school has spoiled us with a number of first-rate performers, but it is without doubt Eric Heidsieck who best conveys the dreamy and poetic aspect of these nocturnes. It is a very personal interpretation and it works wonderfully.
