Composer and pianist John Field (1782-1837)

Irish-born composer John Field eventually settled in Russia, having first visited St Petersburg in 1803, when he was around 21 years old. In 1815, he composed his Piano Concerto No. 5 entitled “The Fire by the Storm”. Storm). It’s unknown for certain, but this title may be a reference to the events of 1812 and its aftermath when Napoleon invaded Russia, resulting in the deaths of over a million soldiers and citizens in just six months. Or maybe not. Nevertheless, the first movement of the Concerto contains a stormy passage with a gong, other percussion and a second piano (probably just to improve the sound of the quieter first pianos of the time). Listen to this passage to begin ten minutes in the Concerto. The Piano Concerto No. 5, “The Fire by the Storm”, is the masterpiece of today’s noon at 2 p.m.
