Nocturne No 1
Eric Chapelle & Michelle Schumann
A gentle start to the day is assured after listening to Nocturne No. 1, a combination once more, from composer Eric Chapelle and pianist Michelle Schuman and is a track from the forthcoming album Works for Solo Piano.
The soothing solo piano narrative is the perfect way to get the hours ahead on the move in the most graceful of ways, Schumann’s performance is equally as graceful, and the delicate but precise presentation and structures were wonderfully delightful to listen to.
The arrangement is enhanced further by the superb art work courtesy of Santa Fe based artist Rick Stevens, whose Winter Moon over Cornfields is utterly idyllic and certainly fit for purpose. Nocturne No. 1 is one of those sumptuous new singles that will end up being a constant on your playlist of choice, full marks indeed for another fantastic release.
