Quick Overview

John Field was an Irish composer, contemporary with Beethoven, whose music embraces the Romantic aesthetic which was emerging in all the arts of the time. Field wrote a large number of compositions, among them being 27 nocturnes (including Number 5) which ably demonstrate the delicacy of his compositional technique. Nocturne No. 5 is a beautiful, restful work which can provide an excellent contrast to more technically oriented works to help demonstrate the full range of expression which the flute choir is extremely well suited to produce. It is scored for 3 C flutes, alto and bass.
