David Quigley debuts on AVIE with a stunning and beautiful recital which takes the listener on a moonlit journey of the solo piano nocturne, with works by Field, Chopin, Schumann, Liszt and many more.
Award-winning Irish pianist David Quigley, heralded by The Birmingham Post as a musician of "amazing maturity and concentration", makes his AVIE label debut with a recital which begins and ends with Quigley's compatriot and the genre's originator, John Field. Quigley traverses the highways and byways of interpretations by composers through the centuries, from Chopin to Schumann, Liszt to Lowell Liebermann and many more in between.
Gramophone Magazine - Awards Issue 2018
"Bookending his imaginatively chosen programme with [Chopin and Field], David Quigley offers a kaleidoscope of nocturnes across the ages, passing through Russia, Norway, American and his own native Ireland, represented not just by Field but also by contemporaries Philip Martin and Philip Hammond."
