John Field: Inventing 'Night Music'

Tamara Cislowska


Night Music by Field, Chopin, Liszt, Tchaikowsky & Rachmaninov

Acclaimed pianist Tamara-Anna Cislowska has graced the great concert halls of the world, shared her innate sensitivity and interpretive powers with the finest orchestras and received critical acclaim for her numerous musical recordings.

Tamara is joined onstage by Irish diplomat and raconteur Richard O’Brien in this special concert for St Patrick’s Day. John Field: Inventing ‘Night Music’ shines a spotlight on the life and music of Irish composer and pianist John Field. One of the most influential composers and innovators of the 19th century, Field’s Nocturnes influenced Chopin, Schumann and Liszt among others. He lived the last 30 years of his life in Russia and fostered a whole new school of Russian pianism that can be seen in the future compositions of Tchaikowsky, Scriabin and Rachmaninov.
