Chopin’s Nocturnes

I could get by just having Chopin’s Nocturnes. The melodies have so much charm and delicacy, full of atmosphere and emotion, and they all have such marvelous endings — intriguing to wait and see just how he will imaginatively conclude each.

Only other composer I could compare them to is Satie. Satie can achieve the same simplicity and engaging melody. People today think that drumbeat is real music, but I think it’s all about melody. Drumbeat is a bull in a china shop — blundering noise compared to melody.
