last.fm no longer hosts music, though some Wiki sites direct listeners here, but these pieces ARE streamable at http://soundcloud.com/andryspiano

This digital album includes some favorite and also less-known classical works for piano, non-virtuoso and more reflective.
What they have in common, besides the beauty of the writing, is a nocturnal quality, dream-like in mood.

Interesting inner-voice writing, gorgeous melodies, and some unexpected progressions are key elements of these pieces that have been enjoyed by 150 to 200 years of listeners.

Chopin's metronome marking for Nocturne No. 8 in Db is an example. Tthe interpretation's an exploration of Chopin's indicated tempo, which is still faster than the one taken here, which is somewhere in between the usual slower tempo and Chopin's marking.

This Nocturne cut was used in a short-film entry that is a homage to silent-movie style, at the Cardiff Screen Festival Nov 2005, and was uploaded at YouTube by Reaction Films. The 'score' is of course Chopin's!, though the Youtube info is for the sound-source.
