Ivor Gurney’s exquisite miniature, Nocturne in Ab, was originally composed for piano in 1908. Although primarily known for his songs, Gurney’s piano works are equally finely crafted and this Nocturne is no exception, packed with soaring melodies and beautiful chromatic turns. Arranged here for wind quintet this piece is a wonderful addition to the Romantic wind quintet repertoire, perfect for a moment of calm and repose in a programme.
