In 1848 Chopin gave a number of concerts in Scotland,
but it was during his performances held en famille, in
stately houses rather than in large concert halls, that
his music showed the melancholy and plaintive sentiment
which typically pervaded his ailing soul. Organized
in such a mansion - the sixteenth century Bamff
House - Nocturnalia featured exclusively nocturnes
by the precursor of this musical form - John
Field - as well as those by Frédéric Chopin himself,
including the two Nocturnes, which he
dedicated to his Scottish benefactor.
