Sono Luminus is proud to present this two-disc set from pianist Michael Landrum, Nocturnes, bringing together a plethora of composers’ works that enliven the nocturne genre of music.

The nocturne genre has long been a topic of interest to Mr. Landrum. He has had the opportunity to share his insights into this ever-evolving repertoire on many occasions throughout the country. - Sono Luminus


"...A professor of music at Roberts Wesleyan College in Rochester, NY, Landrum has made something of a specialty of the nocturne. Of the many approaches to the form featured here, a few are highly tumultuous. Take Tcherepnin’s Nocturne Op. 2 No. 1, whose middle section consists almost exclusively of crashing octaves and sixths or sevenths, and whose outer sections are dark and foreboding. Or consider Tchaikovsky’s Nocturne in C-sharp minor, with its challenging final section. Or Bizet’s Nocturne, which builds drama like an operatic potboiler. Others here are gems of dreamy, fleeting emotions..." - WQXR
